Wilmington, North Carolina, a city with a population of 110,000 people and an global airport, has been cut off from the rest of the world by flood waters.

Rescuers freed six dogs that were locked up in an outdoor cage in North Carolina during Hurricane Florence, as the water level was rapidly rising.

Through Sunday afternoon, numerous locations in southeast North Carolina had recorded more than 20 inches of rain, and several have broken the state record for total rainfall in a tropical storm or hurricane, exceeding the 24.09 inches that fell near Wilmington during Hurricane Floyd in 1999.

As the remnants of Florence moved into the U.S. Northeast, and the sun appeared in some areas for the first time in days, residents of the Carolinas confronted its after-effects, including power outages, impassable roads, and sewage spilling into flooded areas.

"The soil is soaked and can't absorb any more rain so that water has to go somewhere, unfortunately", he said.

Flash floods, landslide warnings and "prolonged significant river flooding" throughout the region will continue for the next few days, the National Weather Service (NWS) said.

The coastal city of Wilmington, North Carolina, remained cut off by flood waters early on Monday. "Wherever you live in North Carolina, be alert for sudden flooding".

The dead included a one-year-old boy who was swept away after his mother drove into floodwaters and lost grip on him as they tried to escape their vehicle. The mother had driven around barricades on a closed stretch of road, the post said.

The storm dumped more than 8 trillion gallons (30 trillion liters) of rain on North Carolina, the weather service said.

The flooding is coming from rivers, rather than the ocean, thanks to the feet of rain that have fallen since Thursday night. "I think it tells us these aren't really 500-year floods and are an occurrence that is going to happen to us more and more", he noted. They placed an order and left without having to get out.

Utility crews from multiple states worked to restore power, and outages were down from a high of more than 900,000 to about 320,000 homes and businesses, almost all in North Carolina. He had been evacuated a day before by military troops in a truck.

"The floodwaters were rising so I figured I better get out of there", he said.

Officials in North Carolina have said over 900 people have been rescued from floodwaters by the US Coast Guard and volunteers.

In North Carolina, flooding was so bad that officials Monday advised motorists not to travel "in southern, central and eastern parts of the state".
