A hurricane’s impact can last long after it has gone back out into the sea and water levels in rivers have returned to normal. Proof perhaps more compelling than words is this collection of photographs.

A Category 1 hurricane by the time it made landfall, Florence wreaked water-related havoc as it crawled through Coastal and Eastern North Carolina. At speeds as slow as 2mph, Florence created 1,000-year rain events in towns such as Mount Olive, dumped nearly three feet of rain in Elizabethtown, and generated a surge exceeding seven feet in Jacksonville.
