Family members, like other residents, expect to be bombarded with torrential rain possibly for days.

"There's going to be really nowhere for anybody to go", said Chief House with Wrightsville Beach Police. Later in the day, trees could be seen on top of roofs, driveways and parked cars.

The barrier island of Emerald Isle is under water, with ocean waves rolling in over a six-foot storm surge and crashing into homes.

As rescuers battled strong winds and debris-filled floodwaters to pluck hundreds of stranded people from their homes, officials confirmed at least three deaths from the monster storm, while United States media reported a fourth. Local media said she had suffered a heart attack.

Officials have assured them they will be rescued by FEMA teams who are ready to do swift water rescue.

The city of New Bern, with a population of around 30,000, is under a mandatory evacuation, according to The Weather Channel.

Hurricane Florence was downgraded to a Category 1 storm overnight.

Residents at Trent Court Apartments wait out the weather as rising waters get closer to their doors. "We are stuck in the attic".

"A storm surge warning means there is a danger of life-threatening inundation, from rising water moving inland from the coastline".

The town of Oriental had gotten more than 457mm of rain just a few hours into the deluge, while Surf City had 355mm and it was still coming down. On the forecast track, the centre of the storm is expected to move inland across extreme southeastern North Carolina and extreme eastern South Carolina Friday and Saturday.

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper warned people: "Today the threat becomes a reality".

Right now, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Hurricane Center is predicting that Florence will become a tropical storm tomorrow (Sept. 15) over SC, continue northwest to eastern Kentucky, then swing northeast and track over most of New England early next week.
