NC Gov. McCrory confirms 2 more storm-related deaths
One week after Hurricane Matthew, and the scope of the storm’s aftermath is still hard to fathom. Gov. Pat McCrory said in a news briefing Saturday morning that two more people died because of the storm, bringing the total to 26, WTVD reported. Both of the two most recent victims — from Cumberland and Wayne counties — were found submerged in vehicles.
After Gov. Pat McCrory’s tour of Tarboro, which is about 60 miles east of Raleigh, he confirmed 24 people have died across North Carolina because of Hurricane Matthew’s flood waters.
