Some return to areas damaged by Florence, but serious threat persists

In Carteret County, North Carolina, there were six teams performing rescue operations Saturday but those efforts have been challenged by downed trees and power lines.

“While most homes experienced minor shingle and siding damage, there is an extensive amount of homes with damage from falling trees and high flood waters,” county officials said in a statement.

The National Hurricane Center warned that parts of southern and central South Carolina could get an additional 10 to 20 inches of rain, and that parts of the North Carolina coast south of Cape Hatteras are expected to see storm totals of between 30 and 40 inches of rain.

“This rainfall will continue to produce catastrophic flash flooding and prolonged significant river flooding,” the hurricane center said in a 8 p.m. bulletin.

Nearly 200 roads were closed throughout New Hanover County, North Carolina, where Wilmington is located, and Wilmington police were asking residents to stay inside and keep off the roads.

“We cannot stress enough how dangerous the road conditions are,” police tweeted Saturday afternoon.
