ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory says Hurricane Matthew is veering away from the state, but warns residents should still be prepared. Speaking at a news conference on Thursday, McCrory said residents should be ready for potential power outages and fallen trees. Hurricane Matthew, the fiercest Caribbean storm in nearly a decade, is barrelling towards the southeastern United States after killing at least 69 people, mostly in Haiti, on its deadly northward march. As Matthew blew through the northwestern Bahamas on Thursday, it was predicted to strengthen from a Category 3 to 4 storm en route to Florida's Atlantic coast, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said. The storm could either take direct aim at Florida or brush along the state's coast on Thursday night.
