Hurricane Florence, now a deadly storm, made landfall on the east coast of the US bringing in historic destruction and devastation for Carolina residents.

Storm Florence has caused heavy rainfall and flood that spectators are calling ‘Biblical Flooding’ and a ‘thousand-year rainfall event’. The deadly storm has taken a toll of over 17 lives so far with reports of ‘more casualties to be expected’ coming in.

Experts have been warning that the next few days could be critical owing to the destructive round of flooding caused by the storm. Now weakening, Storm Florence is slowly heading west with forecasters fearing the worst as major rivers swell up above record levels. Emergency immediate evacuations in the nearby areas have been ordered causing thousands of people to seek shelter in safety camps.

7,500 people within a mile’s radius of Little River and Cape Fear River have been evacuated so far. Authorities have further ordered evacuation from parts of Fayetteville city which has a population of over 200,000. Mayor Mitch Colvin said, “If you are refusing to leave during this mandatory evacuation, you need to do things like notify your legal next of kin because the loss of life is very, very possible. The worst is yet to come”.

As per US media, the death toll has reached 17 with the latest death of Michael Dalton Prince (23), caused by the flipping of the out-of-control SUV, he was driving, onto South Carolina’s flooded road.
