The Latest: Disastrous floods will be story of Florence

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) - It's about the water, not the wind, with Hurricane Florence making an extended stay along the North Carolina coast.
 
Forecasters say "it cannot be emphasized enough that the most serious hazard associated with slow-moving Florence is extremely heavy rainfall, which will cause disastrous flooding that will be spreading inland."
 
Top winds were holding at 90 mph -- that's just a Category 1 hurricane -- but some communities were already submerged in more than six feet of water as the storm drenched the coast.
