As many Americans were focused on the increasingly bruising presidential campaign, Hurricane Matthew moved up the eastern seaboard over the weekend, bringing flooding and devastation with it. Matthew, which was downgraded to a post-tropical cyclone Sunday, has left at least 23 people dead in the United States; it killed 1,000 people in Haiti after slamming into the Caribbean nation last week.
