Loudoun County Activates Emergency Operations Center as Hurricane Florence Moves Inland

"A mother and infant were killed when a tree fell on their house", police tweeted Friday afternoon.

Police say the father was taken to the New Hanover Regional Medical Center. "The longer you have this hurricane wind flow, the longer you push that water well inland", he said.

By early afternoon, Florence's winds had weakened to 75 miles per hour, just barely a hurricane and well below the storm's terrifying Category 4 peak of 140 miles per hour earlier in the week.

Tropical storm-force winds extend outward up to 175 miles from its center.

Still, he said: "I feel like the dumbest human being who ever walked the face of the earth". "I see the beach communities' being inundated with water and destruction that will be pretty, pretty epic". As forecasters warned the hurricane could lead to potentially catastrophic flooding.

Craven County, where New Bern is located, had logged more than 100 service calls from residents trapped on their roofs or in their cars, county spokeswoman Amber Parker said.

Hurricane Florence, weakened but still risky, has crashed into the Carolinas on Friday as a giant, slow-moving storm that stranded residents with floodwaters and swamped part of the town of New Bern at the beginning of what could be a days-long deluge.

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".

Employees at New Bern's WCTI-TV NewsChannel 12 had to abandon their studio for the "first time in history", the station posted Thursday night on Facebook.

The storm has claimed at least five lives, two of them in Wilmington, NC.

Firefighters pray at an operation to remove a tree that fell on a house injuring resident during Hurricane Florence in Wilmington, North Carolina on September 14, 2018. Heavy rain has fallen in and around Oriental, North Carolina, where 20.37 inches of rainfall has been measured thus far.

Tropical Storm Isaac became Tropical Depression Isaac Friday morning.

About 1.7 million people in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia are under voluntary or mandatory evacuation orders and millions of others live in areas likely to be affected by the storm. River flooding may be worse than Hurricane Floyd in 1999.

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).
