Flooding worries also increased in Virginia, where roads were closed and power outages were on the rise. "Yeah, I considered moving, but who is going to buy a house that floods?" he said.

More than 15,000 people were staying in 150 emergency shelters in North Carolina on Sunday. The woman had driven around barricades to reach a closed road, the sheriff's office in Union County, near North Carolina's border with SC, said on Facebook. Lee Reeser said they were not able to return to their home for 13 months after that storm.

For days, crews have been using helicopters and boats to rescue people trapped by still-rising rivers.

Surveying the murky brown water that had risen by Monday morning, he said Florence's deluge appeared worse.

The mobile unit, which carried more than 30 medical personnel, is the only facility within a 50-mile radius for the community, which is as isolated as neighboring Wilmington, he said.

In Wilmington, North Carolina, four straight days and nights of pounding rain have caused one local river to overflow its banks, eroding Highway 40. "I'm in trouble", said the Raleigh resident. "We're also providing resource referrals that they can follow up with to get the information they need in order to feel calmer or more control in the situation". The largest amount so far was in Elizabethtown, which has received 35.93 inches (0.91 meters).

What is left of tropical storm Florence is soaking the mid-Atlantic with buckets of rain as it drifts toward New England, leaving death and destruction behind in the Carolinas.

The most rainfall recorded in SC was in the town of Loris, where 23.81 inches (0.6 meters) fell.

"We had to evacuate".

Florence, which made landfall as a hurricane Friday, dropped about 8.04 trillion gallons of rain on North Carolina, the National Weather Service said Tuesday, citing "the unofficial, radar-estimated storm total rainfall". "It was too risky to stay", Hammett said.

- Another person died in Pender County, according to the county's emergency management director.

"The neighbors told us our home was fine apart from a few branches down, so that's a relief at least", he added.

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.

Particularly in eastern North Carolina, conditions "remain extremely unsafe", Cooper said.

Almost 485,000 customers in North Carolina and 15,000 in SC are without power.

"There we're concerned about some of the bacteria impacts and the public health and aquatic life impacts that results when their contents are introduced into the rivers, lakes and streams nearby", he said.

At the White House, President Donald Trump said nearly 20,000 military personnel and federal workers were deployed to help with the aftermath.
