The number of victims of the storm «Florence» rose to 11 after the death of three people in Cumberland County, North Carolina, told local broadcaster Fox.

The cause of death of three people is still unknown.

Hurricane «Florence» hit the Atlantic coast of the USA on Friday and immediately began to weaken, now its status downgraded to a storm. The danger from wind has dropped significantly — it does not exceed 75 kilometers per hour. However, there remains the threat of severe flooding, as the storm brought a huge amount of rain and nearly stopped traffic with access to land.

More than 27 thousand inhabitants of North and South Carolina are in temporary shelters. Hundreds of thousands of consumers were left without electricity.
