North Carolina’s governor continued to warn Saturday of “treacherous” floodwaters from Hurricane Florence, urging residents in the eastern part of the state to stay alert for flood warnings and evacuation orders. Gov. Roy Cooper said nine of the state’s river gauges are at major flood stage and four others are at moderate stage. South Carolina has ordered more evacuations as rivers there continue to swell as they carry runoff from record rainfall dumped by the storm toward the coast. Florence made landfall eight days ago near Wilmington, N.C., and headed out of the region on Monday.
