One person was killed in Virginia by an apparent tornado whipped up by Florence, and six were killed in SC.

The National Weather Service said Tuesday that Florence dumped more than 8 trillion gallons of water on North Carolina.

"We're in a floodplain but a hundred-year one", he said as floodwaters lapped at the house's front steps.

"We believe our extensive basin closure work was instrumental in positioning us to reduce the storm's impact - water levels in many ash basins near the coast were lower as a result of our closure activity, so the basins were better able to accommodate significant rainfall", she said in a statement.

North Carolina had deployed around 2,000 boats and 36 helicopters to help people stranded in floods, Michael Sprayberry, the state's director of emergency management, told ABC's "This Week" program on Sunday.

The victims include a 1-year-old boy who was swept away after his mother drove into floodwaters and lost her grip on him while trying to get back to dry land in North Carolina.

"For many parts of North Carolina the danger is still immediate".

The rain has finally stopped in Eastern North Carolina, but the flooding continues, particularly along rivers in the coastal plain that are still rising.

"The storm has never been more unsafe than it is right now", North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper said at a news conference yesterday.

Also ahead of Hurricane Florence, about 217 sick and disabled patients were moved from the Hampton, Virginia center and transported to other facilities in Martinsburg, West Virginia; Salem, Virginia; Richmond, Virginia; and Salisbury, North Carolina, VA officials said.

"There's too much going on", he said.

At least one North Carolina dam has breached so far under the strain of Florence's flooding, but officials say no homes were affected. 100% of the net proceeds of the "Carolina Strong" T-Shirt, which is now available online at NBAstore.com, Fanatics.com and HornetsFanShop.com for $24.99, will go to the Foundation For The Carolinas' Hurricane Florence Response Fund.

Downgraded from a tropical depression, the deadly storm still had abundant rain and top winds around 40kmh.

As many as 255 primary roads remained closed due to flooding Tuesday, North Carolina's transportation chief James H. Trogdon said.

"At this time, things are moving as well as can be in the city", Saffo said.

"We are struggling to get routes open to places like Wilmington, Columbus County, and Brunswick County-a lot of communities surrounded by water", and Cooper added, "The road situation is very dynamic from hour to hour".

The White House said President Donald Trump would visit North Carolina on Wednesday.
