14 September 2018 US & Canada.

Hurricane Florence is ravaging the US East Coast, knocking out power to more than 600,000 homes, causing buildings to crumble and stranding residents.

The centre of the storm made landfall at Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina, with gales of up to 90mph (150 km/h).

A powerful storm surge toppled trees and swamped streets in coastal areas. Dozens of people were rescued from a collapsing hotel in North Carolina.

Evacuation warnings are in place for 1.7 million people.
