North Carolina Governor Warns Residents to be Alert for Florence Flash Floods

Florence death toll rises to 25 as flooding continues

Officials warned residents to avoid driving around barricades.

"This is an epic storm that is still continuing", Cooper said. Surveying the murky brown water that had risen by Monday morning, he said Florence's deluge appeared worse. The North Carolina Department of Transportation advised drivers not to travel through the state at this time.

Meanwhile, officials in SC are also warning of flash flooding after a long weekend of heavy rain from Florence. The big concern now is river water gushing downstream, further deluging flooded cities.

"The storm has never been more risky than it is right now", North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper said at a news conference yesterday.

At least 18 people were killed in the storm.

Long noted that "recovery is always a very frustrating process for people when they've lost their livelihoods, but we're going to be OK".

The number of customers without power across North Carolina fell to just under 500,000, with about 20,000 in SC. She says fire and police officials were going door to door in the affected neighborhoods Sunday morning to make sure people are aware.

The storm made landfall on Friday near Wilmington, a city of about 120,000 squeezed between North Carolina's Atlantic coastline and the Cape Fear River.

The mother managed to free Kaiden from his vehicle seat and escape the auto, but her child was quickly swept away in the deluge.

"For many (most?) places, the worst of Florence's flooding is still on the way", meteorologist Eric Holthaus noted in a tweet on Sunday.

"We will do whatever it takes to keep the American people safe", Trump said.

Trump is also addressing the impact of Hurricane Florence in the Carolinas.

The state board said it's already sending out state ballots for several counties that can't do so because of flooding, power and internet outages or because their offices are inaccessible. Six people died in SC, including four in auto accidents and two from carbon monoxide from a portable generator.

Willard said in a statement their bodies were found in a Loris home Saturday afternoon, but they likely died the day before as the heavy rains and winds from former hurricane-turned-Tropical Depression Florence were moving onshore.

About 60 children in state custody along the coast of North Carolina have been evacuated to a YMCA conference center in the western mountains.

In New Bern, about 140 kilometres northeast of Wilmington at the confluence of two rivers, Florence overwhelmed the town of 30,000 and left the downtown area under water.
