Hurricane Matthew's gone, but is now blamed for at least 21 deaths as hundreds of thousands remain out of power in the damaged Southeast.

FOX's Gurnal Scott in Charleston, South Carolina has the story:

North Carolina governor Pat McCrory is telling his state not to be complacent because skies are clear today:

(McCrory) "We still have very very serious issues."

McCrory says the storm is now much deadly than it was before:

(McCrory) "I'm sad to report that we now stand at 10 storm related fatalities."

According to McCrory, five people are still reported missing. A big concern is storm-water runoff. Flooding in central North Carolina is cresting rivers and streams towards the coast, that's prompting many swift water rescues this morning.
