Two people died in Wilmington after a tree fell on their house, the city's police department said. The father was taken to hospital with injuries. Also, one person was killed while plugging in a generator, and a man was knocked to the ground while outside and died, authorities said.

Hurricane Florence is now located about 15 miles north-northeast of Myrtle Beach, North Carolina.

The hurricane hit the coast around 7:15 a.m. ET, after being downgraded from a Category 4 to a Category 1 storm the day before.

"You can walk faster than this storm is moving", said Wilmington Mayor Bill Saffo.

In New Bern, North Carolina, the storm surge overwhelmed the town of 30,000 which is located at the confluence of the Neuse and Trent rivers. "We are stuck in the attic".

"We're seeing potential for flooding in counties that haven't seen flooding in recent years and we're looking at 500- to 1000-year rain and flood events here in North Carolina".

"I see the beach communities being inundated with water and destruction that will be pretty, pretty epic in nature".

The National Hurricane Center described Florence's path as a wobble around southeastern North Carolina.

The death toll from the hurricane-turned-tropical storm climbed to 11.

By Friday evening, the centre of the storm had moved to eastern SC, about 15 miles northeast of Myrtle Beach, with maximum sustained winds of 70 mph. Over 60 people had to be pulled out of a collapsing motel in Jacksonville, North Carolina, and hundreds were saved as water levels rose. Power outages are widespread including over 740,000 in North Carolina and 163,000 in SC. Now now not lower than 68 people died as a scream result of Storm Harvey, in step with the Nationwide Storm Center.

The Triangle is under a flash flood warning until 8 p.m. Sunday.

Hurricane Florence has claimed the lives of four people in North Carolina, and left hundreds of thousands without power.

He urged residents not to return to their homes to check the damage to their property.

That also means that colossal weather systems like Hurricane Florence are easy to observe as the spacecraft cruises along.

"It's an uninvited brute who doesn't want to leave".

Storm surges - the bulge of ocean water pushed ashore by the hurricane - were as high as three metres. In Belhaven, the rising Pungo River almost swallowed the first floor of a house. "Our preparation is now having to turn to determination and we're going to work hard to recover and recover quickly", Cooper said. It's the sheer volume of water, in the form of tidal surges, rain, and anticipated flash flooding that make this Category 1 storm unusually unsafe.

Emergency crews were stretched thin.

Preparing for the worst, about 9,700 National Guard troops and civilians were deployed with high-water vehicles, helicopters and boats.

Roads are particularly bad in Pamlico and Craven counties, with major and secondary roads flooded, according to Transportation Secretary Jim Trogdon.

Shell said she has one bedroom and a 20-by-40-foot sunroom she estimates could house up to 20 cots. Gusts reached over 100 miles per hour - the highest recorded in North Carolina since 1958.

The personnel combined with other agencies to form the Tennessee EMS Ambulance Strike Team and the TEMA-Middle Tennessee Fire Chiefs swift-water rescue team.
