The child's injured father was hospitalized.

As Hurricane Storm Florence lashed through the Carolinas with howling winds and heavy rain, one reporter was captured attempting to keep it together as winds appeared to lash at him, but was mocked when two people were seen walking behind him with little difficulty.

In Pender County, a woman died from a heart attack after paramedics were not able to get to her.

Florence came ashore more than 24 hours ago. About 400 people have been rescued. People were stuck in their cars, attics and rooftops, waiting for rescuers in boats.

The girl and her family were rescued from their home in James City.

Florence could dump a staggering 18 trillion gallons of rain over a week on North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky and Maryland, meteorologist Ryan Maue of weathermodels.com calculated.

In the United States, "you can't move houses, but people can move out of the way", reflecting mounting damages from storms and often lower losses in life, Vecchi said.

"It has slowed", he said.

There is really nowhere for the water to go.

"The cost to SC, if that happens, if the storm continues the way it is going, could be in the billions", Dahler said.

The video had been viewed more than 3.6 million times and had received nearly 60,000 retweets as of Friday evening.

Coastal Albemarle and Pamlico Sounds will likely become bottlenecks, filling with runoff faster than they can drain into the ocean, he said.

Power outages increased throughout Friday.

Florence is still exacting a toll in the Carolinas, and many of these numbers could rise.

More than 100 people were rescued and up to 75 more were awaiting rescue on Saturday morning, according to a town official.

The Triangle is under a flash flood warning until 8 p.m. Sunday.

"We knew this was going to be a big storm, but it is going to be of epic proportions", North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper told a news conference in Raleigh. He urged residents to stay inside and not get in the way of emergency workers.

Rainfall totals for the storm will be similar to those in hurricanes Dennis and Floyd in 1999, the National Weather Service's Chris Wamsley said.

"It costs to leave", Glover, who also founded the environmental justice organization Sol Nation, continued.

He said flooding will continue for days and the full magnitude of the hurricane is unknown. "For overall damage, it would be hard, at the end of the day, I think, to find a rival for this storm". Five hundred National Guard troops had responded to calls by 11 a.m. Friday.

"We have solid data across decades of rainfall records to nail the attribution - climate change is increasing the frequency of extreme rainfall events", Cobb said.

North Carolina corrections officials said more than 3,000 people were relocated from adult prisons and juvenile centers in the path of Florence, and more than 300 county prisoners were transferred to state facilities.

Officials in North Myrtle Beach, where some flooding was occurring, did report some delays in their 911 emergency system, according to a news release, but their public safety personnel are still out in the community. He added that there would be no mercy for those who try to steal from others' homes during the storm.
