North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper told reporters that five deaths have been officially confirmed in his state, with several more under investigation.

Tropical Storm Florence weakened to a tropical depression early Sunday morning as it continues to crawl through SC, according to the National Hurricane Center. And nearly 60,000 utility customers were without power across the northern part of the state.

More than two feet of rain had fallen in some eastern counties places, and the drenching went on and on, with forecasters saying there could be an additional foot-and-a-half by the end of the weekend.

More than 24 hours after Florence caused major flooding in New Bern, N.C., the city announced that all people who needed rescuing had reached safety. It's about 425 miles west of the Azores, moving north-northeast at 22 mph. Numerous roads were closed, and authorities warned of potential landslides, as well the possibility of flood waters imperiling dams and bridges as rivers and creeks swelled. Duke spokeswoman Paige Sheehan said about 2,000 cubic yards of ash were displaced at the Sutton Plant and that contaminated storm water likely flowed into the plant's cooling pond.

Their homes are still damaged from Matthew, but they survived, members of the family said.

In New Bern, at the confluence of the Neuse and Trent rivers in North Carolina, Florence overwhelmed the town of 30,000, with the downtown area under water. By Tuesday, officials expect more than 62 feet for the river that runs through the center of the city.

Most of the rivers in northeast SC and eastern North Carolina are experiencing moderate to major flooding and, in some cases, many continue rising well into next week as floodwaters from the interior flow downstream.

As the Carolinas get battered by Hurricane Florence, a number of key and often confusing terms that have suddenly entered the public consciousness could use some explaining.

There are no coastal watches and warnings in effect, although flash flood warnings are in effect across a large portion of southern and western North Carolina and parts of northeast SC and southwest Virginia.
