Matthew unearths caskets in Chesapeake

CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WVEC) -- Hurricane Matthew not only knocked out power to thousands and brought about severe flooding for much of the area, the storm also unearthed dozens of caskets in Chesapeake.

Pictures show many of these caskets out of the ground at Centerville Chapel AME Church in the Mount Pleasant Heights neighborhood.  The flood waters managed to move some of the  caskets several feet.

13News Now reporter Arrianee LeBeau is on scene and will have a full report, beginning at 13News Now at 4.
