  • These photos show how much Hurricane Florence 'ravaged' the Carolinas

Global warming has increased the likelihood of more massive, sluggish storms like Florence, capable of dropping record amounts of rain and causing the type of catastrophic flooding that crippled North and SC this week, experts said.

Twenty-one flood gauges showed major or moderate flooding early on Thursday in southeast North Carolina and northeast SC, where major waterways, well above their flood stages, were forecast to rise through the weekend before they crest, the National Weather Service said.

Major flooding on North Carolina's Little River earlier this week swallowed buildings and forced evacuations.

The National Weather Service said Tuesday that even with Florence gone, a stretch of the eastern US spanning hundreds of miles from SC to Virginia was still vulnerable to moderate or major flooding.

North Carolina's Department of Environmental Quality tracked 21 swine waste lagoons that were discharging into floodwaters and an additional 17 that were being inundated. Large mounds of manure are also typically stored at poultry farms.

Hurricane Florence caused more than $1.2 billion in damages in South Carolina, Gov. Henry McMaster estimated Thursday in a letter to members of the state's congressional delegation asking for their help in getting federal aid.
