One person was killed when Florence spawned at least 16 tornadoes on Monday in Virginia, where dozens of buildings were destroyed, the National Weather Service reported . Roads are being cleared and the landfill is open to accept storm refuse. The sheer amount of water has caused rivers to overflow their banks, making roads impassable and flooding entire neighborhoods, leaving hundreds of thousands trapped.
Florence was moving west-southwest at about 5 miles per hour (7 km/h), with its center located over eastern SC. "If those shelters fill up, we will establish more shelters", Cooper said. As the remnants of the storm begin to accelerate, it is expected to spark heavy rainfall and renewed flood risks in areas from southern Virginia into the Appalachians, meteorologists warn.

Millions were expected to lose power from the storm and restoration could take weeks. Of those who left, more than 4,000 had sought housing at emergency shelters across the state.
