After causing a major devastation in Haiti, Hurricane Matthew has battered the south-east coast early Saturday with powerful winds, storm surges and torrential rain, leaving six people dead and more than 1 million people without power. In Haiti, Matthew left a death toll of more than 840 in its wake. Some areas there remain cut off.
Officials of Georgia and South Carolina have urged coastal residents to head inland as the most powerful Atlantic storm in more than a decade continued on its path along the coast.
The storm is expected to follow the Georgia coast north, possibly making landfall around Charleston, South Carolina before continuing on to North Carolina and then veering east over the Atlantic Ocean.
