The father sustained injuries and was transported to New Hanover Regional Medical Center in Wilmington for medical care. "The longer you have this hurricane wind flow, the longer you push that water well inland", he said.

In an exclusive interview with North Carolina's Governor, Roy Cooper said [North Carolina] has had three deaths related to the storm.

The storm was downgraded from a Category 1 hurricane to a tropical storm late Friday.

"I'm anxious about what I might find when I go home, though", she said. It's the sheer volume of water, in the form of tidal surges, rain, and anticipated flash flooding that make this Category 1 storm unusually unsafe.

The first victims of hurricane Florence struck the coast of the US state of North Carolina, were two people.

Cooper said the hurricane was "wreaking havoc" on the coast and could wipe out entire communities as it makes its "violent grind across our state for days".

A city spokeswoman for New Bern, NC, said more than 200 people were rescued from floodwaters Thursday night, and confirmed that 150 more were waiting to be rescued by Friday morning.

North Carolina alone is forecast to get 9.6 trillion gallons, enough to cover the Tar Heel state to a depth of about 10 inches (25 centimeters).
