“Stir-crazy” New Bern residents take a dip in Florence floodwaters

“We were stir-crazy from being inside so long,” Moore said. “Feels great. The water’s really cool. … We’re just having a good old time out here, enjoying the weather.”

In New Bern, a riverfront city near North Carolina’s coast, the deadly storm Florence tore away porch steps, splintered balconies and sent a yacht plowing into a garage that shattered like kindling.

Florence drenched North Carolina with more downpours on Sunday (September 16), damaging tens of thousands of homes and threatening worse flooding as rivers fill to the bursting point.

The death toll rose to at least 16.
