Images Reveal Devastation From Deadly Hurricane Matthew


At least twenty-two people were killed over the weekend as Hurricane Matthew pummeled the southeastern coast of the U.S.

The once Category Four hurricane was downgraded to a post-tropical cyclone, but was still powerful enough to cause several deaths and severe flooding in some areas.

One of the twenty-two confirmed deaths happened Saturday on I-64 in Chesapeake, Virginia, when a motorist rear ended a semi that was stopped for a downed tree. The motorist was killed in the crash.

The hurricane caused massive flooding in North Carolina, resulting in hundreds of water rescues. Fayetteville police posted this image of an apparently abandoned semi bogged down by floodwaters on Twitter.

A Good Samaritan finds himself in need of rescuing after attempting to help a trucker stranded by flood waters.

This truck driver was rescued by FEMA teams after reportedly coming around a curve, trying to press through flood waters, and then becoming stuck.

Floodwater caused severe damage to North Carolina infrastructure.
