At Least 5 Dead from Hurricane Florence

Hurricane Florence

More than 200 people were rescued in Bern, North Carolina, where a 10-foot storm surge flooded town.

Millions of people in the path of Hurricane Florence are hunkering down as the storm pummels North and SC, bringing catastrophic flooding and forceful, destructive winds. Its top sustained winds have dropped to 70 miles per hour and it's at a near standstill, moving west at just three miles per hour.

The National Weather Service said on Twitter on Friday night that Morehead City had received 23.04 inches of rain with more heavy rain coming.

People walk on a local street as water from the Neuse River starts flooding houses in New Bern, N.C., on Thursday.

The Miami-based center had said earlier Friday Florence's arrival would come with "catastrophic" fresh water flooding over portions of the Carolinas.

The National Hurricane Center said Florence had the potential to dump historic amounts of rain on North and SC, as much as a meter in some places.

Firefighters and rescue crews in Wilmington, North Carolina stopped to pray outside the house where a fallen tree killed a mother and her 8-month-old baby.

Elsewhere in North Carolina, one person was killed while plugging in a generator, and a man was knocked to the ground while outside and died.

Hundreds of people in North Carolina have been rescued from rising water.

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.

The National Hurricane Center said Florence will eventually make a right hook to the northeast over the southern Appalachians, moving into the mid-Atlantic states and New England as a tropical depression by the middle of next week.
