Hurricane Matthew is causing widespread chaos as it heads towards the Carolinas, and one couple have gone to rather extreme measures to protect their posessions.

As the record-breaking storm approached Florida's coast, bringing with it dangerous winds and serious flooding, Adriana and her fiancé Gary [second names withheld] realised there was no room in their one-car garage for Adriana's new Toyota Venza.

ABC reports that Gary wanted to put Adriana's car "in a safe place" as they were worried about it becoming damaged outside. So he removed the glass sliding doors at the back of his house, and literally drove it into his living room.

Adriana said the idea was "kind of crazy, but it worked perfectly".


With the death toll in Haiti currently at around at least 300, and at least six people dead in the US, states of emergency have been declared in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina.

Between Florida and Georgia there are 1.2 million people without power, according to authorities, and more than 2 million people have been urged to evacuate.
