It hit the coast as a Category 1 storm with 90 miles per hour maximum sustained winds, the NWS said.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 195 miles.

In South Carolina, emergency managers were watching several northeastern rivers that flooded two years ago during Hurricane Matthew, destroying homes and government offices.

Forecasters said the storm will eventually break up over the southern Appalachians and make a sharp rightward swing to the northeast, its rainy remnants moving into the mid-Atlantic states and New England by the middle of the week.

Just after midnight, the station tweeted that everyone had safely evacuated.

New Bern spokeswoman Colleen Roberts said 455 people in all were rescued in the town of 30,000 residents without any serious injuries or deaths. "This system is unloading epic amounts of rainfall". In Belhaven, the rising Pungo River almost swallowed the firstfloor of a house. It had crested parts of the downtown river walk by the evening hours. The city tweeted early September 14 that 150 people were awaiting rescue. "If you aren't watching for them, you are risking your life".

The city of about 29,000, which was founded in the early 1700s, is near the North Carolina coast and is bordered on the east and south, respectively, by two rivers.

It diminished from hurricane force as it came ashore, but forecasters said the 350-mile-wide storm's slow progress across North and SC could leave much of the region under water in the coming days. However, as US Presidents Trump says, "fake news".

"It's going to be a big operation - very big", Frazier said.

"Honestly, I'm not sure" why some people refused to follow evacuation orders, David Cotton, county manager for North Carolina's Onslow County, told "Good Morning America" on Saturday.

Florence already has set a North Carolina record for rainfall totals, exceeding that of Hurricane Floyd, which struck in 1999 and caused 56 deaths.

The centre of the slow-moving storm, downgraded from a Category 1 hurricane after it came ashore Friday afternoon, was almost stalled over SC early Saturday, about 55 kilometres west of Myrtle Beach, moving west-southwest at just 8 km/h and scooping massive amounts of moisture from the sea. "Catastrophic flooding, long term major river flooding, life-threatening storm surge, and wind damage are occurring or imminent".

After reaching a terrifying Category 4 peak of 140 mph (225 kph) earlier in the week, Florence made landfall as a Category 1 hurricane at 7:15 a.m.at Wrightsville Beach, a few miles (kilometers) east of Wilmington and not far from the SC line.

One of the towns worst affected is New Bern, which sits between the Neuse and Trent rivers in North Carolina. Dozens more were pulled from a collapsed hotel.
