Two cars left stranded by rising floodwaters on the corner of New Centre Dr. and College Rd. on Saturday, September 15th in Wilmington, NC.  Storm surge and continuous rainfall due to hurricane Florence are widespread across the Cape Fear region. Many vehicles are left stranded due to high water in the various parts of the area. Wilmington Mayor, Bill Saffo has pleaded with Wilmington residents, "Stay indoors... if you have to be out driving around do not drive through standing water." Saffo emphasizes, “Turn around, don’t drown.”

Florence has moved on, but N.C. is still dealing with its devastating impacts

Hurricane Florence broke the North Carolina record for rainfall during a tropical storm, beating the previous record of 24.06 inches set by Hurricane Floyd in 1999. Chapel Hill received 6.5 inches of rain between noon on Sunday and noon Monday. In a Monday afternoon briefing, Gov. Roy Cooper urged citizens to practice caution as the state deals with the effects of the hurricane's passing. “My most important message is first: for many parts of North Carolina, the danger is still immediate,” Cooper said. “Flood waters are rising as rivers crest, and they will for days.”
