North Carolina TV station evacuates because of rising water

Tropical Weather North Carolina

Although the storm is passing north of Myrtle Beach, the concern now is that river water from North Carolina will flow into the area and combine with all the water that is already there.

When I left the Island, AFTER the storm had hit, they had anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths.

The National Hurricane Center said the storm would dump as much as 30 to 40 inches (76-102 cm) of rain on the southeastern coast of North Carolina and part of northeastern SC, as well as up to 10 inches (25 cm) in southwestern Virginia.

His state has already endured record rainfall totals, with much more expected to come from the storm that forecasters said was 300 miles (480 km) wide.

WILMINGTON: Florence barreled into the Carolina coast and moved inland on Friday, knocking down trees, overflowing rivers, dumping sheets of rain and leading to the death of five people before it was downgraded to a tropical storm still capable of wreaking havoc. But the storm was shaping up as a two-part disaster, with the second, delayed-action stage consisting of inland flooding, caused by rainwater working its way into rivers and streams. It had crested parts of the downtown river walk by the evening hours. The evacuation zone included part of the city of Fayetteville, which has a population 200,000.

Properties within one mile of the river were hastily evacuated on Saturday. "As rivers keep rising and rain keeps falling, the flooding will spread". The storm was expected to move across parts of southeastern North Carolina and eastern SC on Friday and Saturday, then head north over the western Carolinas and central Appalachian Mountains early next week, the NHC said.
