"It doesn't matter where you are", he said. "It required a tremendous amount of heavy lifting, airbags and saws".

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.

The body of the 78-year-old man was discovered by family members Friday morning.

Gov. Roy Cooper's office said he died while plugging in a generator.

Emergency officials warned residents that the peril had probably not passed, as the storm continued to dump torrential rain.

Wind And Rain From Florence’s Leading Edge Lash Carolinas
Hurricane force winds extended 80 miles from the centre of the storm, while tropical storm force winds extended up to 195 miles. Officials said some 1.7 million people in the Carolinas and Virginia were warned to evacuate, but it's unclear how many did.

The woman and infant died when a tree fell on their house in Wilmington, North Carolina, police said. He said it was a testament to the close calls around the city.

"And when the tide comes back up around noon, we will be inundated with additional storm surge", she said. "We have also gotten calls from family members anxious about relatives they can't reach". "It doesn't get any worse".

"The slower it moves, the longer these rain bands take", National Hurricane Center Ken Graham warned.

Swift-water rescue teams are assisting residents of one historic North Carolina community that was swamped.

But forecasters said its extreme size meant it could batter the US East Coast with hurricane-force winds for almost a full day.

The hurricane has been moving at only 3-6 miles per hour as it drops torrential rains. More than 3,000 inmates at North Carolina prisons and juvenile detention centres were moved out of the storm's path. Hurricane-force winds extended 80 miles (130 kilometres) from its centre, and tropical-storm-force winds reached out 195 miles (315 kilometres).

The storm is threatening catastrophic flooding while leaving scores in need of rescue from rising waters and hundreds of thousands without power.

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper said Florence was set to cover nearly all of the state in several feet of water. "It's an uninvited brute who doesn't want to leave". "Hurricane Florence is going to continue its violent grind across our state for days".

At the time, the storm carried winds of about 90 miles per hour (145 km/h), making it a Category 1 storm, but that ranking belies the hurricane's massive clouds and the downpour it is visiting on the coastline, with some areas already drenched in 30 inches (76 centimeters) of rain.

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. It will likely weaken more on Friday, with "rapid weakening forecast over the weekend", the hurricane center said. And she has seen reports of people fleeing to rooftops to escape high floodwaters.
