Photos: Hurricane Matthew Hits Florida, Kills One

More than three million people have been evacuated from Florida, Georgia, North and South Carolina as Hurricane Matthew hits.

The biggest storm in a century is set to hit around 26 million people with President Obama declaring a state of emergency and mobilising thousands of National Guard troops.

At least 842 people have already been killed as Matthew swept through Haiti, Jamaica, the Dominican Republic and the Bahamas.

The first US death caused by the storm has been reported in Daytona Beach - a woman in her 60s was killed by a falling tree after feeding her animals when the storm had subsided. More photos...
