Hurricane Florence edges toward Carolinas

Four people have died as Hurricane Florence mauls the US East Coast, knocking out power to 600,000 homes and causing buildings to crumble.

A mother and child were killed when a tree fell on their house in Wilmington, North Carolina. The father was transported to hospital with injuries.

Dozens of people were rescued from a collapsing hotel as a huge storm surge toppled trees and swamped streets.

Evacuation warnings are in place for 1.7 million people.

The third fatality was a woman who had a medical condition.

She called for emergency assistance, but ambulance workers could not reach her in time due to fallen trees blocking their route.
