"At this time, things are moving as well as can be in the city", Saffo said. Applying this type of increase to total loss volumes for North Carolina and SC alone suggests the industry may see tens of thousands of total loss vehicles from Florence alone.

"There's too much going on", he said.

"We don't know. We'd love to have them", McMaster said. "We have nothing. And now it looks like it's going to be a week before we get power". It's now at more than 60 feet and expected to crest sometime on Wednesday.

In South Carolina, more than 200 roads, including dozens of major ones, are closed because of flooding. Officials said more closures are expected as rivers and creeks rise throughout the week.

North Carolina estimated on Tuesday 3.4 million poultry birds and 5,500 hogs died in the storm, exceeding the number killed in the state's last major hurricane two years ago. They also warned that other routes are still unsafe and sinkholes are developing under some of the flooded roads. "But with the category drop, yes, that's another factor why we did stay". A second shelter is opening in Carteret County.

The river's overflow also turned Interstate 40 in Pender County into a river, which state Department of Transportation officials say serves as a reminder of how unsafe traveling in the area can be. The sheriff said the pair had been on the roof of their truck for about an hour before they were spotted from the air.

Emergency officials urged residents to leave, but that may not be an option for many. It isn't until you get right up to one that you can see that the cluster is alive.

In New Hanover County, White agreed.


In Lumberton, where the Lumber River inundated homes, Fire Chief John Paul Ivey couldn't even count how many calls authorities had received about people needing to be rescued.

Relying just on a smartphone to steer out of a disaster zone is not a smart idea.

Due to Florence's floodwaters, Brunswick County remained divided into three separate islands Tuesday.

The city manager told CNN that 12,000 people are "in harm's way".

The agency said 13 are overflowing from heavy rainfall and 55 are close to the brim and could overflow if water levels continue rising.

"The city seemed to come to life a little with the power restored and clearer skies", Oakley wrote. Businesses were re-opening and owners removed sandbags and plywood from storefronts.

Crews are working to fix washed-out roads such as the bridges at N.C. 87 and N.C. 211, he added. The area's other professional sports organizations have also stepped up - the Carolina Panthers launched a T-shirt campaign and the Carolina Hurricanes started a relief drive.

Duke Energy spokesman Jerry Miller said Tuesday morning that the company has committed to restoring power to the three-county area by Sunday night.
