“It’s like a bomb went off” said New Bern resident George Zaytoun. “Everything around us is underwater.”

Meanwhile, the Cajun Navy has begun rescuing stranded residents of New Bern, North Carolina. Organizer Clyde Cain told CNN that they have received over 500 calls for assistance.

The latest iteration of our IMR group's work. This is what storm surge looks like. #Florence will make landfall in the next 36-48 hours and bring with it, 6-9 feet of potential storm surge. @parkertwc will show you what that looks like. @LocalNow @weatherchannel #NCwx #SCwx pic.twitter.com/mG9JjOOJeM

I’ve never seen destruction like this. Parts of the Triangle Motor Inn in Jacksonville were evacuated overnight when winds from #HurricaneFlorence lifted the roof off several units and collapsed. This father got out with his 2 kids just in time pic.twitter.com/ApVnyUhah2
