North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said the damage in his state is in the billions of dollars, but there was no way to make a more accurate estimate while flooding continues.

Georgetown County Administrator Sel Hemingway warned the area may see a flood like it has never seen before.

The rescuers used night vision goggles during the rescue.

Florence dropped more than 18 inches (45 centimeters) of rain over parts of this county on the northeast bank of the Cape Fear River.

He says first responders "continue to show unflinching courage in the face of danger".

Even though Florence was downgraded into a tropical depression, officials say conditions are still risky.

As torrential rains from the storm filled local waterways and flooded nearby roads, Smith, one of hundreds of local farmers in a state known for its poultry and hog operations, found himself cut off from supplies, power and any way to move his birds out.

Gov. McMaster estimated damage from the flood in his state at $1.2 billion in a letter that says the flooding will be the worst disaster in the state's modern history.

About 25 miles (40 kilometers) nearer to the SC coast, Kevin Tovornik tore out carpet and removed furniture as a preventative measure because he expected flooding at the house he has owned for 20 years in Conway, where the Waccamaw River was still rising.

In the wake of Hurricane Florence, Pollocksville, North Carolina, Mayor Jay Bender spoke to Fox News' Griff Jenkins about the devastating flooding in his town. The National Weather Service said the river could reach record flood levels late Saturday or early Sunday, and shelters are open.

Florence is blamed for at least 42 deaths in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. At least 43 people have died since the hurricane slammed into the coast more than a week ago. More than 200 roads across the state were closed or blocked as residents.

McMaster said Friday he had "contacted or attempted to speak personally with the families of everyone who we lost during this crisis, this tragedy", including the families of Newton and Green. In South Carolina, 40 major roads were closed. Well over half the dead were killed were in vehicles.

"All of that water is coming your way and people don't know that and they assume, you look outside and you see this lovely weather but over the next couple of days it's going to get rough in SC". The waters there have now receded, but only after flooding homes like Mary Mosely's.

In Bladen County, North Carolina, around 100 people and 33 animals were rescued "in a unsafe operation in the middle of the night" after a dam burst, Governor Roy Cooper said in a Twitter post on Friday. They were met by silty mud on walls and floors, blown out windows and bad odors.

SC governor Henry McMaster estimated his state has already suffered $1.2bn in damage.
