Florence death toll riingTropical Storm Florence has claimed at least 11 lives in less than two days as the downgraded storm lumbers at snail pace through the area, forcing millions to flee as rivers threaten to overflow.

Authorities had warned residents not to let their guard down as Florence weakened slightly Saturday morning, with the real threat being walls of rain and storm surges that are expected to thrash the region into early next week.

On Saturday afternoon, the latest three deaths provided a stark example of that warning in action. Authorities in Duplin County, North Carolina said all three people had died after being swept away in their vehicles by floodwaters. Police are reportedly working to recover the victims' bodies.
