Storm Florence’s drenching rains kill 23 in the Carolinas

Deeper flooding loomed in the hours and days ahead from rivers in the Carolinas swollen by Tropical Depression Florence, which has killed 23 people, even if rain-weary residents got a brief glimpse of sunshine. The slow-moving storm, a hurricane when it hit the North Carolina coast, has dumped up to 36 inches of rain on the state since Thursday, displacing thousands.

The flooding could persist for several weeks in some areas. The coastal city of Wilmington remained cut off by flood waters from the Cape Fear River. Further inland, the same river, running through Fayetteville, a city of 200,000, was expected to reach major flood levels.
