A city-by-city look at Florence's rain and flooding

State officials had warned in previous days that Global Positioning System was aiming people toward flooded routes and urged people to check for road closures before driving.

"This is an epic storm that is still continuing", Cooper said. "We will have to sort out the crop damage", he continued, adding: "I think that it's fair to say in terms of economic impact rebuilding that we are talking in the billions of dollars". The North Carolina Department of Transportation advised drivers not to travel through the state at this time.

Brock Long, of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, said to expect more storm damage in North Carolina and other states. The slow-moving storm hovered over the same area for multiple days, causing record-breaking flooding and storm surge.

The rain finally stopped and the sun peeked through, but North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper warned that dangerously high water would persist for days.

"What we have to focus on are there any dams that are going potentially going to break".

About 488,551 customers in North Carolina and 16,385 in SC don't have electricity.

North Carolina's elections officials are assessing the possible effects of Hurricane Florence on county boards and the 2018 vote.

Rescuers freed six dogs that were locked up in an outdoor cage in North Carolina during Hurricane Florence, as the water level was rapidly rising.

As the Navy's fleet of ships returns to Naval Station Norfolk after being sortied ahead of Hurricane Florence, two more ships will remain on standby for storm recovery assistance. "To date, we have not received a single photo of receipts or signs showing far above average prices", he said. "We ain't going to be able to do it by ourselves", he said.

Florence was drifting westward over SC, reaching about 30 kilometres southeast of Columbia S.C., at 5 a.m. Sunday, the NHC said.

In Virginia, near state capital Richmond, emergency services said one man died after a building collapsed during severe weather, though it was not clear if that death was directly linked to Florence.

GoFundMe has also verified this campaign for Task Force 75, a team of veterans that have brought boats and supplies to Wilmington, North Carolina to help with search and rescue operations.

"Not only are you going to see more impact across North Carolina. but we're also anticipating you are about to see a lot of damage going through West Virginia, all the way up to OH as the system exits out", Brock Long of the Federal Emergency Management Agency told Fox News on Sunday.

About 60 children in state custody along the coast of North Carolina have been evacuated to a YMCA conference center in the western mountains.
