"And a spread of of the rivers will gape extended flooding, some no longer cresting for about a days."North Carolina officials warned motorists no longer to power on roads as the total south-east corner of the remark had risky prerequisites".

The death toll from Florence rose to at least 17 as the storm crept slowly westward over the Carolinas Sunday, dumping massive amounts of water on the region.

In Goldsboro, North Carolina, home of Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, roads that frequently flood were already closed Saturday by rushing water.

Since Matthew, Goldsboro has trained firefighters in water rescues and equipped them with additional boats, Stevens said, saying the city was "much better prepared with equipment and training to help people".

"There is no access to Wilmington", Woody White, chairman of the county Board of Commissioners, said Sunday at a news conference.

As rivers swelled, state regulators and environmental groups were monitoring the threat from very big hog and poultry farms located in low-lying, flood-prone areas. Disaster experts say it's often hard to quickly confirm hurricane-related fatalities because of the vast regions storms can affect.

About 509,000 homes and businesses were without electricity on Monday in North and SC and surrounding states.

More than 2.4 million people were evacuated from China's southern Guangdong province ahead of the massive typhoon, the strongest to hit the region in almost two decades.

Five people have been arrested for looting in the North Carolina city of Wilmington as rain and flooding from storm Florence continue to cause chaos.

"Not only are you going to see more impact across North Carolina ... but we're also anticipating you are about to see a lot of damage going through West Virginia, all the way up to OH as the system exits out", Brock Long of the Federal Emergency Management Agency said Sunday on Fox News. More than 5 million gallons of partially-treated sewage spilled into the Cape Fear River after the power went out at a treatment plant, officials said, and the earthen dam of a pond holding hog waste was breached, spilling its contents.

While dealing with Florence in the Carolinas, the Trump administration's disaster relief chief found himself talking on Sunday news shows about the death toll in Puerto Rico from last year's Hurricane Maria, which President Donald Trump loudly disputed on Twitter. "We've also had some extreme coastal storm surge... and we had some pretty high winds", Sprayberry said. He spent more than $500 on cereal, eggs, soft drinks and other necessities, plus beer.

Julie Lamb, with her 15-month-old twins, stepped off a Coast Guard boat after being rescued from her parents' house, where the yard was submerged and water was still rising at Lumberton.

"We know that children have been ripped from the lives that they knew, and they're unsure of what the future may hold", Thompson said.

"As you can tell, they're not listening to me", he said. Authorities ordered the immediate evacuation of up to 7,500 people living within 1.6 km of a stretch of the Cape Fear River and the Little River, about 160 km from the North Carolina coast. Further inland, the same river, running through Fayetteville, a city of 200,000, was expected to reach major flood levels later on Monday, and would not crest until Tuesday.

With the rain pausing for the first time since Friday, local resident Logan Sosebee pulled out his kayak to carry food and supplies to those who need it on the other side of the flooded river.
