Heavy rain has fallen on portions of central and eastern SC after former hurricane-turned-Tropical Depression Florence moved onshore.

It has dumped up to 40 inches (100 cm) of rain on North Carolina since Thursday, the NWS said.

As rivers swelled, state regulators and environmental groups were monitoring the threat from huge hog and poultry farms located in low-lying, flood-prone areas.

Deadly storm Florence drenched North Carolina with more downpours on Sunday, cutting off the coastal city of Wilmington, damaging tens of thousands of homes and threatening worse flooding as rivers fill to the bursting point. "The Cape Fear, Lumber, Neuse, Yadkin, and portions of the Rocky River and the South Fork of the Catawba River, are still rising, and not expected to crest until later today, or tomorrow".

Florence was headed through Virginia and toward New England and flash flood watches extended from Maryland through NY and southern New England. "Many of the rivers will see prolonged flooding, some not cresting for a few days".

Coming out, they said, 'He's not coming out. "While I was on the field, I just didn't feel right". Head coach Sean McDermott spoke at his press conference and was reluctant to go into the details.

He said residents should "expect flooding and potential landslides tonight and into Monday", and warned against driving in the water "no matter how confident you feel or how much you want to get out of the house".

In New Bern, a riverfront city near North Carolina's coast, the storm tore away porch steps, splintered balconies and sent a yacht plowing into a garage that shattered like kindling. Leatherwood said the boy's father and mother were home but were not hurt. The woman had driven around barricades to get on a closed road, the sheriff's office in Union County, near North Carolina's border with SC, said on Facebook.

One of those ordered to leave was John Rose, who owns a furniture business with stores near the river.

Eric Tryggeseth, 59, found his home in Leland, North Carolina, without power on Monday and a tree laying in his front yard. He had been evacuated a day before by troops in a truck. "We will have to sort out the crop damage", he continued, adding: "I think that it's fair to say in terms of economic impact rebuilding that we are talking in the billions of dollars".

If an increase goes ahead, "China will have to take necessary countermeasures", said Geng at a regular daily briefing. Those tariffs would come on top of the tariffs on $50 billion of Chinese goods the USA announced this summer.

There were now 2,000 federal workers working on storm response, supporting state efforts, said Tom Fargione, FEMA Federal Coordinating Officer, during a press conference.

The storm's death toll climbed to 14 when a man drowned after a pickup truck flipped into a drainage ditch along a flooded road in SC.

"Right now we've rescued over 400 people. It's getting frustrating", he said.

The storm killed at least 11 people in North Carolina, including a mother and child hit by a falling tree, state officials said.

Florence weakens into depression, heads north
In Wilmington , the state's eighth-largest city, residents waited for hours outside stores and restaurants for basic necessities like water.
