Catastrophic floods raised the threat of dam breaks and landslides across the southeastern United States on Sunday, prolonging the agony caused by a killer hurricane that has left more than a dozen people dead and billions of dollars in damage. "And numerous rivers will see prolonged flooding, some not cresting for a few days".

"The storm has never been more risky than it is now", North Carolina's Republican Gov. Roy Cooper said during a press conference on Sunday.

He says, "We will do whatever it takes to keep the American people safe", and the nation grieves for those who have lost loved ones in the storm. "They can't do that unless we clean it up".

The remnants of Hurricane Florence are moving away from the southeast, but the aftermath of more than 30 inches of rain will linger for days in the region's rivers. Please note "Hurricane Florence Relief Fund" in the memo area of each check.

Of the 20 deaths linked to Florence, 15 happened in North Carolina, and five were in SC. "Last time we had sun was on Wednesday". The river, well into the major flood stage, is forecast to crest at 26.1 feet on Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.

Freelance journalist Marcus DiPaola tweeted that he helped rescue six dogs in Leland, North Carolina, after they were left locked in an outdoor cage.

Two men in their 70s died in Lenoir County.

"Not only are you going to see more impact across North Carolina. but we're also anticipating you are about to see a lot of damage going through West Virginia, all the way up to OH as the system exits out", Brock Long of the Federal Emergency Management Agency told Fox News on Sunday.

"I'm insane. I made a bad decision", he said.

By Tuesday, Guy said, "the remnants of Florence will be pushed towards the Northeast, where areas from northern Pennsylvania through central NY towards Boston could pick up some heavy rain".
