  • S Florence unleashes havoc on Carolinas

Flash flooding, triggered by Florence, was reported in most parts of North Carolina, northern SC, and parts of Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York and into southern New England.

Officials in the Carolinas are anxious about what deaths are still to come amid the swelling rivers and flooding from Florence's crawl across both states.

Officials are planning to airlift food and water to Wilmington after the city of almost 120,000 people became cut off from the rest of North Carolina by rising flood water from Florence.

As the remnants of Florence continues to dump inches of rain, still-rising floodwaters are prompting emergency situations across the Carolinas. In Loris, South Carolina they received two feet of rain.

Florence was a Category 1 hurricane when it made landfall Friday and has since become a tropical storm that drenched the area and caused major flooding.

Even as some residents began returning to their homes, officials warned of a long road to recovery.

Tens of thousands of houses have been damaged, but for many parts of the Carolinas, "the worst is yet to come" as river levels rise to historic levels, said Zach Taylor, a meteorologist with the US National Weather Service. Residents in the nearby town of Conway worry that's going to send water from the rising Waccamaw River to flood their homes instead.

- Another person died in Pender County, according to the county's emergency management director.

Prior to Kaiden's death, the North Carolina Department of Public Safety issued a breakdown of 16 storm-related fatalities by county, and Gov. Roy Cooper confirmed the updated tally of 17 during a news conference on Monday.

"Most main-stem rivers across central N.C. will flood", the National Weather Service office in Raleigh said on Monday, adding, "the Neuse, Cape Fear, Haw, Deep, Rocky and Little Rivers are now in flood". "It was torrential rain for days", said Saffo.

The N.C. Highway Patrol has stressed that people trying to return home should not drive around police barriers, said Cooper.

The coastal city of Wilmington was largely cut off due to flood waters from the Cape Fear River, with one single road available for emergency workers and those bringing food and water.

The mayor of New Bern, a city badly affected by flooding, told NBC he had imposed a curfew.

Six deaths have been confirmed in neighboring SC, with the latest being the driver of a pickup truck who drove into standing water in Lexington County.

"We got them out, but by the time we left, the water was so high that they would have drowned".

Florence, which has been downgraded to a tropical depression from a hurricane, was headed through Virginia toward New England.

North Carolina officials reported 1,200 road closures, including a stretch of Interstate 95, a major transportation artery on the U.S. East Coast.

North Carolina emergency department officials said 23 truckloads of Meals, Ready to Eat - packaged US military rations - and crates of bottled water had been sent into Wilmington.

Authorities say the number of deaths tied to Florence has risen to at least 31, the bulk of them in North Carolina. President Donald Trump also plans to visit the state this week.
