Neighbour Adam Sparks said he noticed emergency responders arrive at the house across the street right around when his power went out and the storm was intensifying.
The water "is as high as it's ever been, and waves are breaking on my point, which is normally grass", said Copeland, a freelance photographer for The Associated Press. "I couldn't even imagine", he said. Florence dumped more than 20 inches on Oriental, N.C., the NHC said.

More than 3,000 inmates at North Carolina prisons and juvenile detention centres were moved out of the storm's path.

Florence made landfall as a Category 1 hurricane at 7:15 a.m.at Wrightsville Beach, a few miles east of Wilmington, not far from the SC line, coming ashore along a mostly boarded-up, emptied-out stretch of coastline.
