US evacuates East Coast cities as storm approaches

Hundreds of thousands of people in Florida and South Carolina have been told to evacuate as hurricane Matthew churns towards the US East Coast.

President Obama warned this is a serious storm and would have a “significant” impact on Florida on Thursday

Traffic jams are reported in the city of Charleston, in South Carolina, as residents flee the area.

The category three system is currently battering the Bahamas, carving a trail of destruction across Haiti where thousands have been displaced and at least two people died.

The giant storm also hit Cuba..

Matthew would be the first category three hurricane to make landfall in the us since Wilma struck Florida in 2005, causing five deaths and an estimated $23bn  of damage.
