Dana Outlaw, the mayor of New Bern, North Carolina, said on Fox News Channel Friday that about 150 residents will need to be rescued after severe flooding from Hurricane Florence.

He said that only 300 of the city's 22,000 residents have power as of Friday afternoon, as the hurricane was downgraded to a tropical storm.

More than 1 million people had been ordered to evacuate the coasts of the Carolinas and Virginia and thousands have moved to emergency shelters.

As Americans in North and SC begin to feel the effects of Hurricane Florence, The Weather Channel has reminded viewers of how risky storm surges can be.

He confirmed that due to rising waters, some people are waiting for rescue in their attics and on their roofs.

In a new demonstration of the network's CGI capabilities, hosts have presented from the centre of a digital storm surge to demonstrate the hurricane's damaging potential.

Florence is a large hurricane.

Surges and flooding will reportedly continue as it lashes SC.

"It's an uninvited brute who doesn't want to leave".

In Wilmington, the storm tore down numerous trees when its centre tore through the area Friday morning.

Additionally, there will be damaging winds that could top 100 miles per hour, isolated tornadoes, and "devastating" storm surge. The National Hurricane Center said Monday the monster storm will be close to Category 5 strength by Tuesday.

"WE ARE COMING TO GET YOU", a tweet from the city overnight said.

Hurricane Florence is now located about 15 miles north-northeast of Myrtle Beach, North Carolina.

The NHC said hurricane-force winds extended outward 35 miles (55 kms) from the center of the storm and tropical storm-force winds extended almost 170 miles (280 kms) out.

Given the storm's size and slow speed, officials warned that Florence could cause similar large-scale flood damage to that seen in the Houston area during Hurricane Harvey just over a year ago.

The National Hurricane Center said Florence will eventually make a right hook to the northeast over the southern Appalachians, moving into the mid-Atlantic states and New England as a tropical depression by the middle of next week.

There is around 156,068 people that have lost power and police have suspended their services in Morehead City and other coastal cities, warning any residents who remain in the evacuation zone that they will be without emergency services until the storm passes. "The storm is wreaking havoc on our state".

Hurricane Florence made landfall as a Category 1 storm at 7:15 am (1115 GMT) in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina, after stalking the Carolina coast for days.

Shaken after seeing waves crashing in the Neuse River just outside his house in the town of New Bern, hurricane veteran Tom Ballance wished he had evacuated.

Issac is expected to slowly drift through the eastern and central Caribbean waters through the weekend, not too far from Jamaica, but won't be much of a threat. According to Fire Chief Glen Rogers, there are in fact only 12 people left on the beach to sit out the storm.
