Hundreds rescued in New Bern as waters rose

Craven County braces for Hurricane Florence

North Carolina must withstand more torrential rains, gusty winds, and river flooding from Tropical Storm Florence next week, but emergency leaders are already working on the recovery.

It remained a Category 1 hurricane with top sustained winds of 80 miles per hour, but stronger gusts have been reported.

And the deluge is not even close to over - parts of North Carolina are set to receiveanother 15 inches of rainin the coming days, according to The National Weather Service. The rainfall will cause catastrophic flash flooding and prolonged significant river flooding, the NHC said.

Three people died in Duplin County, N.C. on Saturday after the remnants of Florence caused flooding across the area.

As Florence pounded away, it unloaded heavy rain, flattened trees, chewed away at roads and knocked out power to more than a half-million homes and businesses.

"If it rises any higher, I'll break out the jon boat and go somewhere", said Watson, 62, a retired building inspector.

In the besieged city of New Bern, rescuers had plucked more than 200 people from rising waters by midmorning Friday, but about 150 more had to wait as conditions worsened and a storm surge reached 10 feet, officials said.

Josh Gordon released for showing up late and being 'not himself'
Schefter later tweeted that league sources think the Browns will attempt to trade Gordon prior to Monday. "We wish Josh well". Details are slowly starting to emerge surrounding the Cleveland Browns' shocking decision to move on from Josh Gordon .


Wilmington Police have confirmed that a mother and infant were killed when a tree fell on their home.

A man was killed when plugging in a generator, according to a release from Gov. Roy Cooper's office.

Hurricane Florence has claimed the lives of four people in North Carolina, and left hundreds of thousands without power.

About 1.7 million people in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia are under voluntary or mandatory evacuation orders and millions of others live in areas likely to be affected by the storm.

Weather forecasters have said the storm will eventually disintegrate over the southern Appalachians and its remnants will make a sharp rightward swing to the northeast, moving into the mid-Atlantic states and New England by the middle of the week.

One video sees a gas station failing to withstand the force of Florence's winds, with a BP station in Topsail Beach, North Carolina losing its canopy as the Catgory 1 storm blew through the area. He said he walked down to the beach to check it out before the harder rains move in. "You may need to move up to the second story, or to your attic, but WE ARE COMING TO GET YOU".

Southeastern coastal North Carolina into far northeastern SC could see 20 to 30 inches of rainfall; some isolated areas could see 40 inches.

He added that 20,000 people were being housed in shelters across the state. In the clip, journalist Mike Seidel can be seen struggling to stand on his feet due to high wind speeds as two men casually walk behind him in the background.

Members of the FEMA Urban Search and Rescue Task Force search a flooded neighbourhood for evacuees during Hurricane Florence in Fairfield Harbour, North Carolina.

"Our house is on high ground so we're not anxious about the flooding", he said.

Washington, DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser and the governors of North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia and Maryland declared states of emergency. On Saturday, the storm was crawling westward at about 2 miles per hour, unleashing havoc as it went.

The Horry County Coroner's Office in SC confirmed that Debra Collins Rion, 61, and Mark Carter King, 63, died Friday night from carbon monoxide poisoning from a generator, the Mrytle Beach Sun News reported.
