Hurricane Matthew-bloated rivers in North Carolina will continue to rise this week, threatening to flood parts of the state, NBC News reported.
"Record flooding is slowly moving down river on Nuese and Tar rivers," NBC meteorologist Bill Karins said. "Crests will occur in the next two days, but even then it will be well into the weekend before these rivers show significant water level drops."
In Greenville, authorities had ordered evacuations for about one-tenth of its 90,000 people. The Tar was expected crest later in the day and officials warned it would overwhelm every bridge in the county, The Associated Press reported.\
Matthew's death toll in the U.S. has climbed to 39, 20 of them in North Carolina.
