Hurricane Matthew kills at least 17 in US after devastating Haiti (+ PHOTOs)

Hurricane Matthew kills at least 17

Matthew had weakened to a category one storm when it hit southeast of McClellanville, South Carolina, on Saturday but it still brought serious flooding inland.

As well as South Carolina, the storm also caused major destruction in parts of Florida, Georgia and North Carolina.

Millions of homes were evacuated, more than a million homes left without power and US President Barack Obama has declared federal states of emergency in all four regions.

Deaths were recorded in all four states, including some from falling trees and some from carbon monoxide fumes from a generator.

About 100 guests and staff had to flee from a motel in the North Carolina coastal town of Southport after the hurricane cracked a wall and left the roof in danger of collapsing.

North Carolina's governor says the full scale of the disaster is not yet known, with many places still cut off by flood waters.

See more photos after the cut...

May the ones who have lost their lives in this rest in peace and may those who are alive find a better home than they ones destroyed!!!
