 Florence landed on the southeastern coast of the United States, killing at least 4 people.


In September 13th, Hurricane Florence landed in New Bern, North Carolina.

Florence has killed at least four people, including a baby, after landing on Wrightsville Beach in North Carolina, USA, CNN reported Thursday.

Police said the first death from Florence occurred in the North Carolina city of Wilmington east of the landing site. Rescue team members reported to the police that morning that a mother and a baby in the house were crushed by a windblown tree.

The updated report from the National Hurricane Center at 4:50 p.m. Eastern Time showed that the Florence winds had weakened and had fallen from hurricane to tropical storm. It is now moving at 3 mph / h along the coastline from North Carolina to South Carolina.

Storms and heavy rains continue to wash out coastal towns in North Carolina, according to images taken by the U.S. weather channel. The streets have become rivers, and houses have been flooded, just like isolated islands.

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper said at a news conference on the same day that storm surges as high as 10 feet had already occurred in parts of the state. The storm will continue to rage for several days in the state. The U.S. National Hurricane Center also reiterated that the slow movement of Florence would continue to bring 48 hours of storm surges and heavy rain, or catastrophic flooding, to the southeastern coast of the United States. So far, 620,000 users in North and South Carolina have suffered power cuts, and about 26,000 people have been admitted to more than 200 emergency shelters, including more than 12,000 in North Carolina, according to the CBS report. Coastal towns in South Carolina and North Carolina are almost deserted. There are 4000 National Guard soldiers and 40 thousand electric maintenance personnel outside.
