Wilmington Police confirmed that a mother and her infant died when a tree fell on their home. The child's father was taken to a hospital.

The organization is sending truckloads of relief supplies that it says will reach over 10,000 of the most vulnerable people impacted by the storm.

North Carolina Emergency Management advised residents Friday morning that "If your power goes out, do NOT operate gas powered generators or charcoal grills in or near your home". Ballance called the rainfall "biblical", saying he's gotten reports from friends that his downtown seafood restaurant was flooded, just like the rest of the small city's historic downtown, and he's anxious about the hundreds of people who needed to be rescued overnight in the city. Family members found the man's body, according to Lenoir County Emergency Services. EMS services could not get to the woman due to the storm, marking the third Florence-related death since the storm began hitting the North Carolina coastline.

A spokesperson for the ABC affiliate said that roads around the building were flooding. Can you go up a level? "So I had to find a place to go".

Rain forecasts show an additional 10 to 20 inches possible on top of the 10 to 20 inches that have already fallen.

The town of Oriental had gotten more than 457mm of rain just a few hours into the deluge, while Surf City had 355mm and it was still coming down.

Conditions deteriorated on Friday as slow-moving Hurricane Florence crawled along at 3mph (4.8km/ h). Areas from Wilmington through Fayetteville to Charlotte will experience 500-year to 1,000-year flood events, he said. Officials are predicting that potentially 2.5 million customers could be without power as the storm continues on. They had heeded officials' warnings that the storm was treacherous, with record-setting rains and storm surges not seen in North Carolina in decades.

Ashley Warren and boyfriend Chris Smith managed to paddle away from their home in a boat with their two dogs, and the experience left her shaken.

"I about jumped out of my skin", he told The Associated Press in a telephone interview Friday morning.

"It looks heavy outside", she said. "Only communication we have with them is just me flashing my lights to them and I think they have a flashlight they're flickering back to us". Two septuagenarians died in Kinston in separate incidents, according to authorities. "We got thrown into mailboxes, houses, trees", said Holt, who had stayed at home because of a doctor's appointment that was later cancelled. "The longer you have this Hurricane wind flow, the longer you push that water well inland", he said.

And about 46 miles farther up the waterfront, in New Bern, two FEMA teams were working on swift-water rescues and more were on the way.

The city had over 1,200 911 calls in a 12-hour span, said Roberts.

The downtown area, at the confluence of two rivers, is mostly underwater.

Farther up the coast, in New Bern, population 29,000, flooding on the Neuse River trapped people.

Zaytoun now regrets his decision, he said. "For overall damage, it would be hard, at the end of the day, I think, to find a rival for this storm".

Florence was seen as a major test for the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which was heavily criticized as slow and unprepared past year for Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, where the death toll was put at almost 3,000.

"Florence is an uninvited brute who doesn't want to leave", North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper told NPR's Morning Edition.

Terrifying video has captured Hurricane Florence's powerful winds shredding a gas station in Wilmington, North Carolina.

"If you seek to prey upon the citizens of Brunswick County, we're going to do everything we can to lock you up", Ingram warned. "But I think we're ready".

The rainfall is forecast to reach up to 40 inches in some areas over the next several days.

Cline said July was the wettest ever in that part of North Carolina, and the water table rose 21 inches higher than normal.
