President Barack Obama declared a state of emergency in North Carolina on Monday after Hurricane Matthew roared through the state over the weekend, the White House said. The action makes federal funding available to affected individuals in 10 counties hit by the storm, the White House said in a statement.
Hundreds of people were rescued by boat and helicopter as floodwaters inundated North Carolina towns on Monday in the wake of Hurricane Matthew, and officials warned that life-threatening flooding from swollen rivers would continue for days.
Meanwhile, a hurricane watch was issued for Bermuda, which could be threatened by another tropical system, Nicole, that is expected to reach the Atlantic island later this week, the US National Hurricane Center said.
