WA­TERS rise up to flood one of thou­sands of fam­ily homes ru­ined yes­ter­day as Hur­ri­cane Florence hit Amer­ica’s south east coast – and killed at least five peo­ple.

The house and cars fell vic­tim to what po­lice called flood­ing of “epic pro­por­tions” in North Carolina, last night de­clared a dis­as­ter zone by Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump.

Vol­un­teers res­cued res­i­dents from homes all over the state, in­clud­ing one snapped sav­ing a beloved pet dog.

With the flood wa­ters still ris­ing and more heavy rain fore­cast, po­lice urged peo­ple who have left home not to re­turn.
