According to CNN, the hurricane is travelling along the Atlantic Ocean, has reached category 3 and it threatening certain parts of the United States, along South Carolina and the south of Charleston.

Reaching a level of category 3 hurricane, the extensive flooding and high speed winds have left many areas completely destroyed, without clean water or electricity.
