It is a nightmare that won't end for some residents of the eastern seaboard. Florence roved north over the span of a week after it made landfall in North Carolina on Sept. 14, killing 37 people, including a one-year-old baby.
Approximately 10,000 people remained in shelters as roads and homes remain flooded. Cities like Wilmington were cut off by floodwater. Hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses continue to have no power in the wake of the storm. North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper pleaded with state residents to wait to go back to their homes.
"This is such a slow-moving storm that it will continue to create torrential amounts of catastrophic flooding," NBC Los Angeles meteorologist Shanna Mendiola said.
