2 more N Carolina deaths raise Matthew's US death toll to 43
RALEIGH, N.C. - Searchers have found two more bodies inside vehicles that were submerged in flood waters in North Carolina from Hurricane Matthew, increasing the toll in the state to 26 dead.
Gov. Pat McCrory said at a news conference Saturday that the victims were found in Cumberland County and Wayne County after flood waters from last weekend's rains receded.
Flooding triggered by the hurricane has killed at least 43 people in the United States and more than 500 people in Haiti.
McCrory says most of the people killed in his state either drove or were walking through flood waters and were swept away.
The governor says recovery from the flood continues even as waters continue to crest. Only 13,000 customers in the state remain without power.
