GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) – Governor Pat McCrory will give another update on Hurricane Matthew’s impact on North Carolina at 9 a.m., Thursday.

The Tar River in Greenville, North Carolina, is expected to crest today, as some 9,000 residents are being kept away from their neighborhoods.

Gov. McCrory is urging people to heed evacuation orders, in hopes of preventing the death toll from climbing after Hurricane Matthew.

The storm has claimed at least 34 lives in the U.S., and half of them were in North Carolina.
