A string of storms triggered widespread flooding across North Carolina.
Some residents said it's the worst in decades.
The U.S. Geological Survey came in to take a closer look and found rivers to be as high as 21-feet in some places, the highest levels in 40 years.
Surveyors said water is flowing three times faster than normal.
The rain has closed and washed out roadways. Several people have had to be relocated from their homes across the state.
First responders rescued almost a dozen people trapped in cars and houses. They said the worst of the rain is over and they're beginning to assess the damage.
