A 77-year-old man was apparently knocked down by the wind and died after going out to check on his hunting dogs, Lenoir County authorities said. Another person died from a cardiac arrest when emergency services could not reach her, due to downed trees blocking their path. The center of the hurricane´s eye came ashore at about 7:15 a. m. EDT (1115 GMT) near Wrightsville Beach close to Wilmington, with sustained winds of 90 miles per hour (150 kph), the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said.

The enormous storm crept at a 6 miles per hour pace, making it clear that the trouble was just beginning.

A woman named Bree tweeted: "If anybody could help. our cars is under water and so is our house stuck in attic". Other evacuees are sheltering with family and friends or in hotels.

Some towns have endured more than two feet of rain and forecasters say that more than three feet of water could bring major flooding further inland in the coming days.

The rest of SC and North Carolina into southwestern Virginia will experience 5 to 10 inches, with isolated totals up to 15 inches. But once New Bern TV news station WCTI evacuated its newsroom Thursday night because of flooding and people began to lose power, the seriousness of the situation began dawning on folks, she said.

A slowing tropical storm Florence continues to creep along the Carolinas today.

New Bern, N.C., quickly became a trouble spot as floodwaters rose.

"We knew this was going to be a big storm, but it is going to be of epic proportions", North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper told a news conference in Raleigh. NY emergency workers reported rescuing elderly residents at a New River retirement community. "Don't drive across standing or moving water", the governor said, urging people to heed evacuation orders. "It's an uninvited brute who doesn't want to leave".

New Bern has been one of the hardest hit areas by Florence, experiencing a 10-and-a-half-foot storm surge.

"The size of the tree is not something you could simply cut with a chainsaw and remove and then quickly extricate", he said. Roads in its vicinity were flooded as well.

"The sun rose this morning on an extremely unsafe situation, and it's getting worse". Already, the event has broken the state's record for most rain ever observed in a tropical storm or hurricane, with a preliminary report of more than 30 inches.
