Hurricane Florence

Hurricane Florence made landfall last Friday in the Carolinas and caused widespread flooding over the weekend.

It affected North Carolina, South Carolina, and Southern Virginia.

Rivers in North and South Carolina are still at a major flood stage and many cities and towns will remain under flood threats for the next week.

Hurricane Florence hit land Friday morning in Wrightsville Beach, NC, as a Category One hurricane. Some areas received as much as 34 inches of rain and flood waters still continue to rise blocking at least 1,200 North Carolina roads.

North Carolina and Virginia were issued many Tornado warnings on September 17. At least 32 people were killed. Now it is a tropical depression heading for the northern part of the East Coast.

The Coast Guard and the Cajun Navy both helped with evacuations. The Cajun Navy is a group of volunteers that are familiar with rescuing people in flood-ravaged situations.
