The storm's death toll climbed to 15 when a pickup truck ran off Interstate 20 in SC and struck an overpass support, killing the driver.

The storm killed at least 11 people in North Carolina, including a mother and child killed by a falling tree, state officials said.

A third person, a woman, died in Hampstead, NC, in Pender County.

Flash flooding killed three people in Duplin County, North Carolina, the sheriff's office there said. "More and more inland counties are issuing mandatory evacuations to get people to safety quickly". It's believed he died after he was blown down while going outside to check on his dogs.

On Sunday, Florence claimed a 14th victim, a man who drowned when a pickup truck flipped into a drainage ditch in SC, and a 15th, after a pickup truck veered off a road and struck an overpass support beam in SC.

Another victim hasn't been identified, according to Kershaw County Coroner David West.

Officials fear the worst damage is yet to come.

Florence's unsafe flooding "is only going to get worse", North Carolina's director of emergency management warned Saturday as massive amounts of rain devastate the state.

Many areas in southeastern North Carolina have endured 15 to 30 inches of rain and up to another 15 inches could fall.
