The figure included a woman and her baby killed when a tree fell on their house. "The father was transported to (New Hanover Regional Medical Center) with injuries".

Local authorities reported a death in Pender County when downed trees prevented emergency units from reaching a woman with a medical condition.

As of Saturday morning, the National Hurricane Center announced that Florence is now a tropical storm with maximum wind speeds of 45 miles per hour and said heavy rains and catastrophic flooding will continue across portions of North and SC.

"Right now we've rescued over 400 people".

In New Bern, a riverfront city near the North Carolina coast that saw storm surges up to 10 feet (3 meters), authorities were rescuing stranded residents and taking stock of damages. Rainfall is expected to be anywhere from 6 to 10 inches, with the higher totals happening in the southernmost counties of the Piedmont Triad.

"It has slowed", he said.

"The wind was so hard, the waters were so hard, that trying to get out we got thrown into trailers".

A Twitter user captured the moment a reporter for the Weather Channel appeared to fake the severity of the winds caused by Hurricane Florence on Friday as the hurricane made landfall in North Carolina.

But the size of the storm meant the path didn't really matter.

Tropical storm-force winds stretched up to 150 miles (240 kph) from the storm's center.

Power outages increased throughout Friday.

There were 974,000 homes in the Carolinas without power on Saturday morning.

As of noon, Emerald Isle had more than 23 inches of rain, and Wilmington and Goldsboro had about a foot.

"This system is unloading epic amounts of rainfall, in some places measured in feet and not inches", North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper told a news briefing. He urged residents to stay inside and not get in the way of emergency workers.

"Hurricane Florence is powerful, slow and relentless", Cooper said.

"It costs to leave", Glover, who also founded the environmental justice organization Sol Nation, continued.

Risky storm surges and rising tides have caused coastal areas to be flooded, with water rushing inland from the shoreline. Flooding also hit the Bogue Sound near Beaufort, the Pungo River at Belhaven and the Pamlico River at Washington.

Major river flooding expected to continue into early next week.

Tropical Storm Florence continues to weaken as it dumps unsafe amounts of rain across the Carolinas.

Travel is extremely hazardous because of storm surge, Trogdon said, and will only get worse.

About 20,000 people hunkered down in 157 schools, shelters and a coliseum in Winston-Salem. He added that there would be no mercy for those who try to steal from others' homes during the storm.

In New Bern, population 29,000, flooding on the Neuse River left 500 people in peril.

At around 7:30 p.m., Carteret County Humane Society shelter manager Cassandra Tupaj told The News & Observer that three staff members, 43 dogs and 80 cats were stuck on the top floor of the Newport shelter's building, boxed in by rising waters. Additional swiftwater rescue teams were on the way.
