The governor said so far more than 2600 people and 300 animals have been rescued, and that those operations are still ongoing.

Because President Trump declared Virginia a disaster area in advance of the storm, and because federal officials agreed with the decision to evacuate, up to 75 percent of Virginia's liability could be reimbursed by the federal government, Layne said.

The boy's mother had driven around a barricade in the road and ended up stalled in rushing water. Most of the outages were in North Carolina.

In places like New Bern, where the water has already receded, people are beginning to assess damage and clean up. Thousands of homes have been damaged and hundreds of residents had to be rescued from the rising flood waters.

The storm's death toll, including those caused by fallen trees and electrocutions, rose to at least 19 by Monday morning, according to reports.

North Carolina emergency response officials tweeted that 23 truckloads of military meals and bottled water were delivered overnight to Wilmington. Power is still out for the majority of residents, and the ongoing flooding will make it hard for the power company to begin work to restore downed lines. "Not only are you going to see more impact across North Carolina this week ... but we're also anticipating you are about to see a lot of damage going through West Virginia, all the way up to OH as the system exits out", said Brock Long of the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

North Carolina had deployed around 2,000 boats and 36 helicopters to help people stranded in floods, Michael Sprayberry, the state's director of emergency management, told ABC's "This Week" program on Sunday.

Three television stations in a hurricane-ravaged North Carolina city are about to go dark because there's no gas to keep their generators running. "But we're asking people to wait a while before they come home".

Dominion Energy reported 6,000 customers in the Richmond area were without power due to Monday's storm.

If the full storm had hit Virginia, the consequences may have been worse than what's being seen in North Carolina because the population in Hampton Roads is so much denser and the routes out of the region are limited, Stern said.

Gov Cooper said he has been in touch with Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, who visited North Carolina on Monday.

Among the other fatalities were two men in their 70s who died in Lenoir County - one had been connecting extension cords and another was blown by high winds when checking on his dogs.

By 5 a.m. Monday, Florence's winds were about 30 mph (45 kph), the NWS said, with weakening forecast over the next 24 hours before intensifying again.
