Authorities have said there have been 360 rescues in New Bern, with 140 more to go. Lt. David Daniels from New Bern Police said the rescues have not been limited to one specific area but are widespread across the city.
Teams are still searching the area for people. According to WNCT, “The city is also working to restore electricity to those who have lost power. The city asked people to move up to their second story or attic if they need be.”
The flooding began before the rain came down, most of it due to the storm surge.
