"We certainly got lucky in Florida, and now if we could get lucky in Georgia, in North Carolina, in South Carolina", President Donald Trump told reporters in the Oval Office.

The storm has been downgraded from a Category 5 to a Category 2 - but still had dangerously high winds and threatened to swamp low-lying regions from Georgia to southeastern Virginia on its trek northward.
