Although Pittman epitomizes American fortitude, Florence is no laughing matter.

As of 2:15am EST, five people had died in North Carolina.

From 6 ABC:

Blowing ashore as a hurricane with howling 90 mph winds, Florence splintered buildings, trapped hundreds of people and swamped entire communities along the Carolina coast Friday in what could be just the opening act in a watery, two-part, slow-motion disaster.

At least five people were killed.

The National Hurricane Center downgraded Florence to a tropical storm late Friday afternoon as winds fell to 70 mph.

Continued:

Forecasters warned that drenching rains of anywhere from 1 to 3 feet as the storm crawls westward across North and South Carolina could trigger epic flooding well inland over the next few days.

As 400-mile-wide Florence pounded away at the coast with torrential downpours and surging seas, rescue crews used boats to reach scores of people besieged by rising waters along a river. More than 60 others had to be rescued as a cinderblock motel collapsed.

Florence has now made its way into South Carolina.

Tropical Storm Florence is crawling slowly across South Carolina as life-threatening storm surges and strong winds are expected to continue overnight, amid a rising inland flood threat. Forecasters say catastrophic freshwater flooding is expected over parts of North Carolina and South Carolina ahead.

As Florence moves further inland over the coming days, the storm is expected to gradually weaken. Forecasters say it could become a depression by Saturday night.

The National Weather Service said on Twitter on Friday night that Morehead City had received 23.04 inches of rain with more heavy rain coming.

Forecasters have issued what they call a a flash flood emergency, saying areas of surrounding Carteret County are flooding that have never flooded before.

President Donald Trump will make his way to the Carolinas in due time:
