Hundreds rescued as Hurricane Florence pounds Carolinas

Park flooded with rising water

The Wilmington Police Department said Friday that the father was transported to a hospital for treatment.

NBC News reported that woman died in Pender County after suffering a medical condition and a fourth death occurred in Lenoir County.

The hurricane has caused more than 615,000 power outages in North Carolina, with almost 80,000 reported in SC, according to website poweroutage.us.

The town of Oriental, North Carolina, had gotten more than 18 inches of rain just a few hours into the deluge, while Surf City had 14 inches and it was still coming down.

"From Wilmington to Charlotte, we'll experience between a 500-year and 1,000-year flood event", Trogdon warned in a late-morning briefing. "I see the beach communities' being inundated with water and destruction that will be pretty, pretty epic".

A hurricane led to damage of houses, knocked down trees and cut power lines.

"Rescue workers are working in unsafe conditions that will only get worse today", said Cooper, who called the storm a "1,000-year rain event" for parts of southeastern North Carolina. If confirmed by the National Weather Service, that would break the state record for rainfall from a tropical cyclone.

Emergency declarations were in force in Georgia, South and North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia. She died Friday morning.

A United States Geological Society gauge measured 7feet of water above normal levels.

Due to downed trees, emergency crews were unable to get to the woman before she passed away.

"We made a couple calls for emergency, but we knew we were stuck out because it was our fault for staying", said one resident.

Three people were killed in flash flooding and swift water on roadways in Duplin County, NC, the Duplin County Sheriff's Office confirmed. Volunteers are using private boats to pitch in and help, city spokeswoman Colleen Roberts said.

A hotter atmosphere can also hold more water, so this should allow hurricanes to dump more water on affected areas.

"It's like a bomb has gone off", Zaytoun told "Good Morning America" Friday. "Everything around us is underwater".

The department "can confirm the first two fatalities of Hurricane Florence in Wilmington".

Earlier Friday, the Wilmington Police said they were responding to this incident.

The National Weather Service's Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service is predicting "Major Flooding", its most severe classification, from south of the Pamlico Sound in North Carolina, to as as far south as the Waccamaw River near Myrtle Beach, SC.

"We're looking at the same amount of rainfall in three days".

"I had a lot of fear initially but I'm glad to be inside and safe", said Zelda Allen, 74, a retired tax accountant from Hampstead, North Carolina, who was riding out the storm at Wilmington's Hotel Ballast with her husband.
