The National Weather Service says more than 30 inches of rain has fallen in Swansboro, North Carolina. Thousands are under evacuation and nearly a million homes and businesses are without power. Adriana Diaz reports.

      Its ok to bring out all the positive aspects of those helping each other and showing love instead of always negativity and the tragedy of it all...theres alot of good people and good stories that come from things like this. We dont want to hear all the drama, rather the positive and amazing things that people are doin for each other.

    15. experimental trader

      it wasnt a tropical storm

    16. Mark Wilcons

      Just ignore what Florence did here, because we all need to wipe away from our minds the possibility that climate change has enhanced the conditions to make these types of storms worse. We need to come together as a people and dig deep to wash away the idea we made this worse with our own fossil fuel burning for 150 years. Stick together!!!

    17. Greg W

      The Weather Channel and CNN hired midgets to make the water look deeper but they aren't needed. They were out there you just couldn't see em under the water.

    19. Mary Butler-Stonewall Esq.

      At this juncture, this writer feels life is becoming too short, and worries if the message of life will reach the people of this world in time. The extreme weather or lack thereof, around the globe has become relentless. We have severe droughts in over 50% of world, around 37% severe precipitation with rain, snow, or hail overwhelming the tributaries, and storms of all elements at an all time high, we need hero’s to step up. As one reviews the so called “Weather Forecasting Channels”, you would think “Meteorologist” would be on the forefront of “Demanding Building Code Reform”. Meteorologist sees firsthand the devastation as a result of “Inadequate Building Codes.” We must ask “Why haven’t they made it a point to change this disconcerting outcome?” Where a person’s home is no longer a shelter, their natural rights of prosperity, property, and sovereignty swept away in one deadly swoop. Entire family tree whipped off the face of the earth and Meteorologist want to talk about the wind direction at the Cubs Baseball Game. Where is their Humanity? Meteorologist are more about looking good then saving lives. Looking good on camera, as a forecaster, as a hero that warns us/reminds us our lives are not our own, that is all a Meteorologist is for us. When our $350,000 new home is built of twigs, insurance companies, FEMA, UN, Red Cross, the National Guard and the Government have more Rights than we do when it comes to getting our lives back. Why do we fight to get back what we already had and should have never lost in the first place if our “Inherent Natural Rights” meant anything?Meteorologist were at one time, folks that worked to protect our communities, now they only warn our communities, and walk through the aftermath time and time again, without a word of outrage.

      Hillbillies dont want get out from my home my country America... Drown and die u ignorant sobs

    27. Scarlett Flare

      not sure if where i live will get hit but I'm praying for everyone who is affected by this storm

    28. Rodney Mount

      I found this video after seeing several faked news videos of Hurricane Florence supposedly in my city. Some of them actually show signs reading Oregon City or have phone numbers on signs that are in Virginia while the caption reads Jacksonville. I can tell everyone for certain that this is real but not the entire city flooded as they would have you to believe. I had to turn around to avoid the floodwaters shown at 2:48 in this video. This is in Onslow County NC. I actually have my own cell phone photos and video of the burgundy car in the road, and both the black and the white pickup trucks (at 2:50 mark) in the median ditches. They are still sitting there 3 or 4 days after Florence is gone and the waters have drained.

    29. Rigoberto Medina

      Its funny how there's no money from the government for these people whole need the suplies and food but there's 5.6 Billion dollars and tons of supplies being shipped to build a wall at the border !

    30. permata helmy

      Fund for Israel 3.8 billion every year and next year for 10 years

    31. Kristie Will

      STOP BEING SO HEARTLESS! SOME PEOPLE DIDN'T HAVE THE MEANS TO LEAVE. How can u judge someone when you have NO CLUE what their situation is/was?????

    32. Jen S

      Being in an area where hurricanes are inevitable, those particular states should have centers specifically for hurricane season. People who do not have the means to evacuate would have a place to go each time this would occur, NOT just makeshift shelters thrown up at the last minute.

      1. Rich R

        Jen S Good idea.

    33. Tanya Hartley

      LOOK UP YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWS NIGH! TURN YOUR EYES UPON JESUS! I'm prayin for yall. Please try to stay safe.


      So it's fair that everyone was told to evacuate and yet some ppl don't and they expect other's to put their lives in danger bc now they have to come rescue them so selfish of ppl

    35. Tamia Martin

      Feel so bad for you guys😭😭

    36. strattuner

      god bless all who are in the water,thank god for the first responders,all of you cold hearted un-American sobs,i hope you never have to have help at all,some of these people are just hanging on before the damn storm came,its hard to leave everything you've got,people who have gone thru a couple divorces know what it is like to just jump and go,but this is a national emergency,help your neighbor,the world is watching,the good ones are praying for everyone,not everyone is a cold hearted piece of trash,god will honor your love for your neighbor,those who don't believe in god,well your doomed anyway,protect the children and the old folks,AMERICA will see more of this,its the way of it,this continent has floods ,tornadoes,droughts,we are a nation of strange weather,its just the way of it,help or get out of the way,the nation is thinking of you all,god bless

    37. Cynthia Hawkins

      Anyone who says this is fake is a complete and total dunderhead. Fake too??: the drownings, collapsed houses, boats unmoored, downed wires, floating debris. Hubby was in NOLA in 2005: when Katrina hit. Many BTW who were caring for an elder family member were unable to evacuate, or it was too dangerous. So they stayed. Not everybody was 'guarding the silverware"!! But best yet - I love the 'sofa verdicts" from people, safely dry and self-righteous.... hundreds of miles away, who NEVER in their lives felt winds stronger than their own farts.

    38. Trevor Bunyard

      This was God's hurricane. Liberals are to blame for the floodwaters.

    39. EJ - Funeral Director

      If I were those people, I would leave. However, many people don't even have cars, or money to pump gas, or money to pay for lodging. Plus, they aren't working either! It's awful, but the coast in that part of the country, shouldn't be inhabited year round.

    40. Eduardo Rodriguezarias

      build the pipe lines and reservoir. for the hurricane states.

      This is sad😣

    51. Carrie Geren - Scoggins

      At least with their power out, there should be less risk of fire. I wander about the homes that were flooded, wet insulation, that when the water recedes, but the family has not returned to the home but they cut the electric back on, so lights left on, ect. will turn back on and catch it on fire. Hopefully they turned off, unplugged, everything, even though the electric is off from the utilities area.

      THE GOSPEL - IT’S SIMPLE! 1. G OD loves us so much He created us to be with Him 2. O UR sins separate us from God 3. S INS cannot be removed by good deeds 4. P AYING the price for sin, Jesus was crucified for us, died and rose again 5. E VERYONE who trusts in Him alone has eternal life 6. L IFE with Jesus starts now and lasts forever God does NOT want you to follow a “religion". He desires a “relationship" with you, one that all believers in Christ have. HOW TO BE SAVED IN CHRIST A - Admit you are a sinner and repent of any known sins you have committed “None is righteous, no, not one; (Romans 3:10) “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23) B - Believe in the Lord, Jesus Christ, who died for your sins and rose again, conquering death once and for all “ For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16) C - Call upon the Lord “If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. (Romans 10:9) NOW BE CONFIDENT IN GOD’S PROMISES! Because you believe in the Name of Jesus, you are a child of God (John 1:15 para) Before He created the world, He chose you to be holy and blameless before Him, having already decided to adopt you by the good pleasure of His will (Eph 1:4-5) Salvation is free, but it was not cheap. And choosing to follow Jesus is simple, but it is not easy. And anyone who claims otherwise is a liar

    59. Ww Lib

      HOW TO BE FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT (BAPTIZED IN THE SPIRIT) This is a gift offered to every believer in Jesus Christ and His atoning sacrifice on the Cross for our redemption. Ask the Lord to give you a clean heart, a new and pure heart and to fill you with His Holy Spirit, which is His guarantee that you belong to Him, and which gives you the power of God to live for Him and in Him (we cannot abide without the Holy Spirit). He will lead you, teach you, correct you, empower you with His gifts of wisdom, knowledge, understanding, prophecy, miracles, tongues and interpretation of tongues and healing so that you will bear much fruit for His kingdom, which is love, peace, joy, kindness, gentleness, goodness, faithfulness, patience and self-control. NOW BE CONFIDENT IN GOD’S PROMISES! Because you believe in the Name of Jesus, you are a child of God (John 1:15 para) Before He created the world, He chose you to be holy and blameless before Him, having already decided to adopt you by the good pleasure of His will (Eph 1:4-5)

      I know it's not fair than how come my step grandma passed away and she was in North Carolina but my dad says she was already sick but I think it was the stress and worry of the storm 😭

    63. Seth B

      Should leave them and not rescue them then they will learn NO one in the future is coming to get them risking other peoples lives to come get them after a mandatory evacuation.

    64. Deborah Santamaria

      Naturally you attempt to save people. That said, they were offered various ways to evacuate and didn't. No one wants to leave home, that is our safe place, however, by not leaving you have also put an unnecessary burden to the rescue teams who could be dealing with those who are ill or fragile. Is it not better to be safe than sorry? Is it not better to do your part in being safe? Just because you have not seen something before, is no guarantee that you won't. Please, in the future, consider your options more carefully, and think of those who will have to put their life on the line to save yours if they can.

    65. Bobby Harris

      Bless all that are affected and they get the assistance they need ASAP

    66. Joe T

      The picture they put up of pence trump 🤣😂 looks like pence is forcing trump to get involved

      Weather modification that's why it last so long for all category 1 storm sure lingered a long time did a lot of damage check out any other category 1 storm and compare damage and how long it last

    68. Delia Morales

      I got flooded in harvey

    69. NiteShade2160

      There Will Always Be People Who Refuse To Leave When Disaster Is At Their Door. If These People Didn't Value Their Own Lives Enough To Take Sensible Action To Protect Themselves Why Should Anyone Risk Theirs To Save Them. Or Do We Not Value The Lives Of Our Police, Firefighters And Rescuers ? Who Consoles Their Widows And Orphans When They Make The Ultimate Sacrifice ? People Have Every Right To Be Stupid But Make It A Private Affair. Its Not Fair To Expect Other People To Die Because Of Someone Else's Selfishness. And Thats what It Is, Selfishness. What About The Innocent Children Who Die Because Of Parents Who Wouldn't Listen To Reason ? People Never Consider The Impact Their Stupidity Has On Others And Thats A Crime In And Of Itself. We've Already Heard Stories Of Trees Falling On Homes Killing Mothers And Children. Those Deaths Were Needless All Because Of What ? Life Is Precious. Take Time To Save Your Own. In Doing So You May Prevent The Death Of Many More ! !

      1. Carrie Jamaa

        NiteShade2160 I survived Hurricane Irma and I didn’t evacuate. I can’t defend everyone’s reason on that but a big factor is not everyone has hundreds and hundreds of dollars to spend on evacuating, which was why I had to stay

    70. mco

      Is trump going to treat them like Puerto Rico?

    71. Tony Weimar

      they should be told if there is a mandatory evacuation, to come to get them after the the time given they get fined 500 a person.

    72. tonnhard

      Will insurance cover the damage to homes and cars?

    73. Cynthia Miley

    89. Reecee W

      These people are told over and over to leave. This just goes to show you that when GOD'S JUDGEMENT DAY come , they will ignore that warning and be DESTROYED. How selfish people are to jeopardize others lives to rescue them when they did what they wanted to do.

    94. Carol Thomas

      I lived thru 5 hurricanes in 2004 in Florida. I worked at the health department and was deployed to work shelters. When I did get home I was w/o power for 7 days. Fortunately I had water so I was able to get cold showers. I lived next to a store so I was able to get food. It was not a hardship, we were not flooded where I lived and worked. I feel for the people in the Carolina's. I've been thru a lot of hurricanes in my life time but nothings like what they r going through. Prayers.

      0:26 Why is the kayak rental business closed?

    99. W K

      The media won't tell you this, but Florence is proof that the globe is cooling, not warming. Hurricanes derive their strength from energy that ultimately comes from the sun. Weakening solar radiation decreases the power of the hurricanes, so they are both of lesser power and lesser speed. This has two effects on human civilization, one good and one bad. The good one is that the winds themselves are much less damaging. The bad one is that the slower storm takes longer to pass over, giving it more time to dump rain. So we find ourselves in a new era when the greatest threat from a hurricane is not wind damage or storm surge, but flash flooding resulting from heavy rain.
