Hurricane Matthew has now claimed at least 34 lives in the U.S., with 17 killed in North Carolina alone as the state faces more flooding. At a press conference Tuesday, North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory said three more people had drowned since 14 were announced dead Tuesday morning. One man had been driving home when a tree fell on him, McCrory said, and two more people were found drowned in their cars. Another man was fatally shot by police during a high-water rescue, he said, though no details on the incident were provided. “Too many people have died and we don’t want any more to die,” McCrory said. “I saw firsthand the suffering the citizens are going through. That will stick with me for the rest of my life.” Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia are still dealing with the aftermath of the storm, as 700,000 are left without power in those states.
