Baker was unsure, however, whether this particular boat was part of state reconnaissance efforts, or simply someone taking a weird boating trip down a USA highway.

"This was an unprecedented storm with flooding expected to exceed that from any other storms in recent memory". "As defenders of the state's rivers, lakes and streams, we're committed to documenting conditions and alerting the public to threats to public health and environmental quality stemming from Hurricane Florence".

A ninth person has died in SC because of Hurricane Florence bringing the total death toll for the massive storm and its subsequent record-shattering flooding to 42 people.

The storm will continue to sweep through southern New York, Pennsylvania and northern New Jersey.
