Hurricane Florence left five people dead as it touched down in Carolina on Friday, leaving a path of destruction on its trail, Reuters reported. Trees were uprooted, rivers gorged and continuous rain marked its arrival.

It was later downgraded to a tropical storm, which was still however, dangerous. Forecasters predicted that the size of the 350 mile wide storm and its slowness gave the impression that both Carolinas would be underwater by the time it finished its work.

The National Hurricane Center however, said that upto 30 to 40 inches of rain would flood on the southeastern coast of North Carolina and into the northeastern coast of South Carolina.
