More than 30 inches of rain has fallen near Atlantic Beach since Hurricane Florence began there, according to preliminary data from the U.S. Geological Survey.
That would be the highest 24-hour rainfall in North Carolina history, far eclipsing a 22-inch storm in Mitchell County in the mountains in 1916, according to the N.C. Climate Office.
The storm made landfall near Wrightsville Beach at 7:15 a.m. Friday, producing wind gusts of up to 95 to 105 mph in some coastal cities, according to the National Hurricane Center.
This is a developing story.
