Florence Departs U.S. But Rivers Will Rise Further In Carolinas; Heavy Rain Continues In Midwest
Heavy rain has come to an end across the Northeast U.S. as Florence moves into the Atlantic, but major-to-record river flooding will continue across the Carolinas for days to weeks as Florence's rainfall makes its way through area river systems. Meanwhile, a stationary front extending through the Midwest will be a focus for heavy rain with localized flash flooding across the Upper Midwest midweek.
