Daily Record - - NEWS -

A MOTHER and child were among four peo­ple killed as Hur­ri­cane Florence bat­tered the east coast of Amer­ica.

They died af­ter a tree fell on their house in Wilmington, North Carolina, as high winds swept across the state.

A woman in Pen­der County who had a med­i­cal con­di­tion also died. Am­bu­lance work­ers could not reach her in time as fallen trees blocked their route.

An­other per­son was killed while plug­ging in a gen­er­a­tor in Lenoir County.

North Carolina Gover­nor Roy Cooper said: “It’s an un­in­vited brute who doesn’t want to leave.”
