Hurricane Florence: Dogs in cage during flood rescued in North Carolina

Major rivers are expected to remain flooded for the next two to three weeks as rainwater drains into already engorged rivers across the state, said Steve Goldstein of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

As Florence stormed ashore, it backed up rivers with its powerful surge.

Mayor Bill Saffo said he was working with the governor's office to get more fuel into Wilmington.

An 88-year-old man was also found dead next to a vehicle that had been submerged by the floods in Union County on Monday.

Waterkeeper Alliance's Dove told me that in his recent airplane forays over eastern North Carolina, "Some of those lagoons were so submerged that we didn't even know they were there when we photographed them".

"Things are getting better slowly, and we thank God for that", White said. "Florence is expected to produce heavy and excessive rainfall over the next couple of days".

Authorities said the storm did not cause some other deaths that occurred during Florence in North Carolina: a woman who died of undetermined causes in a shelter, a woman who suffered a heart attack at home during the storm, and a couple whose apparent murder-suicide was investigated during hurricane conditions in Otway.

In South Carolina, officials did reopen Monday morning the southbound lanes of I-95 from mile marker 181 to mile marker 190, just south of the North Carolina line, and traffic again started flowing southward, said S.C. Highway Patrol Cpl.

Wilmington, North Carolina, a city with a population of 110,000 people and an worldwide airport, has been cut off from the rest of the world by flood waters.

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

"North Carolinians are resilient and we will come back from this. They are still is without power", said Braden Welsh, one of those behind the initiative.

The storm's aftermath created flawless conditions for snakes, he said, "so I will be watching my feet closely until things reach equilibrium again".

"Normally, we wouldn't expect that to cause too many issues but, when you have saturated soils, it won't take much wind to cause some isolated issues as far as downed trees are concerned".

The Daily Mail reported that the dogs "nearly drowned in the Hurricane Florence's fast-rising flood waters" when they were "rescued from a property in Leland, North Carolina".

"Some areas have not seen the worst flooding yet".
