Almost three feet of rain has fallen on portions of North Carolina, a reported record for the state for rainfall from a single storm.

Major flooding was also expected to the east in Kinston on the Neuse River, expected to reach 27 feet by Monday, nearing a record 28.3 feet set during Hurricane Matthew.

With tropical storm-force winds swirling 350 miles wide, Florence continued deluging the Carolinas on Saturday morning after pushing surging seas far ashore.

More than 22,600 people were housed in 150 shelters statewide, including schools, churches and Wake Forest University's basketball arena. It was moving west at 3 miles per hour, the National Weather Service said.

This round of flooding is predicted to be worse - cresting at what would be a record 22.8 feet just to the north by Tuesday - and the river already was encroaching her yard Saturday. "We don't (where we're going) yet. It'll be ugly, but we'll get through it", Long told NBC's "Meet The Press".

One was killed while connecting an electrical generator and another man was killed in a wind-related incident when checking on dogs outside his property.
