Rain-gorged rivers threatened further flooding in storm-battered North Carolina on Monday as the death toll from Hurricane Florence, now a tropical depression, rose to 23.

Fears of what could be the worst flooding in the state's history led officials to order tens of thousands to evacuate, though it was not clear how many had fled or even could.

"This remains a significant disaster", North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said at a news conference. In Elizabethtown, North Carolina they received three feet of rain over just a few days.

While the storm is gaining speed as it exits the Carolinas, it's still dumping rain - and lots of it.

Storm Florence continues to cause massive floods in the United States after hitting the country last week with an "epic amount of rainfall".

Freelance journalist Marcus DiPaola tweeted that he helped rescue six dogs in Leland, North Carolina, after they were left locked in an outdoor cage.

The Ocean Sentry is flying over the area around Cape Fear River to make sure the waterways in the vicinity have functioning navigational aids such as correctly positioned buoys so they can reopen to shipping, Barresi said.

In Virginia, one person was killed as a result of a tornado associated with Florence, the Chesterfield County Fire Department told local station WHSV.


Emergency crews have rescued 2,600 people and more than 300 animals, Cooper said.

"If you talk to somebody about what's on your mind, it can go a long way in helping you to feel that you're not alone", Mr. Burgess said, "that what you're feeling is normal in the aftermath of a disaster and that recovery is possible and that you will get through this".

The US's highest emergency official said other states were in the path of Florence.

After some navigation apps or in-car map directions sent people in North Carolina onto roads that got flooded or blocked by debris, Google-owned Waze said it was working with local governments and its own community of volunteer map editors to mark closures of more than 1,300 roads in North Carolina and hundreds more in SC and Virginia.

Tillis said on "Fox News Sunday" that Florence, which has been downgraded to a tropical storm, "is likely going to produce impacts greater than Hurricane Matthew". "I think it tells us these aren't really 500-year floods and are an occurrence that is going to happen to us more and more", he noted.

Floods have cut off entire towns and cities in North Carolina, making helicopters the only way to get into these places and help the stranded.

"It's all kind of a blur", said Monroe, the sky overhead sunny and bright after the rain finally stopped.

Video uploaded by the U.S. Coast Guard showed aerial views of severe flooding in New Bern in North Carolina.

President Donald Trump has also announced plans to visit the flood-hit region this week but a date has not yet been set.
