Flash Flood Warning as Remnants of Florence Move Through N.H

Thousands of fire ants are forming

Florence made landfall near Jordan's hometown of Wilmington, N.C., at about 7:15 a.m. Friday as a Category 1 hurricane.

The American Red Cross is providing food and shelter to thousands of people who have been displaced by the hurricane, while the Foundation For The Carolinas' Hurricane Florence Response Fund directs funds to nonprofits in North and SC providing relief to victims of the storm.

Hurricane Florence made landfall on Friday, but it's 90 miles per hour winds and 20-plus inches of rain have left damage and flooding throughout portions of eastern and central North Carolina. More than 300,000 across the state remained without power as of Tuesday morning, according to Duke Progress Energy.

The storm has set rainfall records in several locations in North Carolina, including Swansboro, with a whopping 34 inches, Hoffman Forest with 29.48 inches and Sunny Point with 27.44 inches. Flooding has also impacted areas such as Fayetteville and Kinston, where the Neuse River was still rising.

Mayor Bill Saffo said two routes were now open into Wilmington, which had been completely cut off by floodwaters, but those roads could close again as water swells the Cape Fear River on the city's west side.

FIMAN estimated the damage from flooding in the Lumber River in Lumberton is nearly $35 million. Or northbound motorists from Georgia could get off I-95 and take either I-26 or I-20 to Columbia and then catch I-77 to Charlotte, the agency said. Cooper said more counties are likely to be added in coming days.

"There's too much going on, " he told a news conference.

"We, the people of North Carolina, will get through this", Cooper said.

Major flooding is expected to continue in the state after Florence's passing or even worsen in some areas. Power outages in the Southeast also were down, from a high of more than 910,000 to about 245,000, almost all in North Carolina.

Property damage from the storm is expected to range from $17 billion to $22 billion, the risk management firm Moody's Analytics said.
