These Photos Show The Devastation Caused By Hurricane Florence

The destruction caused by Hurricane Florence on the Carolinas is laid bare in these heartbreaking photos.

Multiple people have died as a result of the 400-mile-wide Florence, which made landfall near Wrightsville Beach in North Carolina on Friday morning and is now moving slowly as a downgraded tropical storm across eastern South Carolina.
