Hurricane Matthew Subsides. Death Toll at 17.

Hurricane Matthew Subsides. Death Toll at 17.

We’ve got some good news and some bad news.

Well the good news is that Hurricane Matthew is no longer a hurricane.
The National Hurricane Center released the follow statement:

“Matthew is no longer a hurricane and is now considered a post-tropical cyclone. Despite its new title, it’s still packing maximum sustained winds of 75 mph (120 kph) — the same as a Category 1 hurricane.”

The bad news is, it’s effects are still wreaking havoc in Southeast US States. North Carolina has suffered the most damage as many areas are terribly flooded. It will take a couple days for the river beds to restore to normal levels. People have been rescued by local law enforcement and some by helicopter. Reports say a little less than 600,000 are still without electricity. The American death toll is reported to be 17. 7 were killed in NC, 3 in SC, 4 in FL, and 3 in GA.

The death toll for the Carribeans Island, specifically Haiti, is well over 800 according to CNN.

Though, many families have fallen victim to this tragic disaster, we are happy to know this storm too shall pass. One family is too many, but all-in-all, we have survived to see more storms. Blessed and fortunate fighters we are!

Our deepest condolences go out to the devastated families across the world who have suffered lost of any form as a result of this storm. We stand with you, ready to rebuild.
