According to Reuters, nearly all rivers and waterways in North and South Carolina will recede after Hurricane Florence by Sunday but most will remain at dangerous flood levels for days to come. The news comes more than a week after Florence struck, killing at least 40 people. Around 5,000 people across North Carolina have also been rescued by boat or helicopter. A report from the National Weather Service says some rivers near the Atlantic coast will not crest for awhile, such as the lower Cape Fear River near Wilmington, North Carolina, one of the hardest hit communities.
