Floodwaters from other areas poured into the rivers upstream. The evacuation zone included part of the city of Fayetteville, which has a population 200,000.

John Rose owns a furniture business with stores less than a mile (1.6 kilometers) from the river. He moved quickly as workers helped him empty more than 1,000 mattresses from a warehouse in a low-lying strip mall.

In New Bern, swift water boat teams rescued almost 500 people who chose to wait out Florence, some scrambling into their upper floors, attics and even roofs to escape shockingly fast floodwaters. Ponds had begun to overflow, and creeks passing under the highway churned with muddy, brown water.
