All that water is now coming downstream. Those many rivers that were not so flooded are now above flood stage. Some are now double above flood stage. Some locations are now so high that some river gauges are flooded.

In the small region where the hurricane made landfall, flooding has and remains a problem in towns around the Wilimington suburbs. Water is receding in the northern suburbs. But the runoff from Central NC has not yet increasing in regions west and south of Wilmington. Data in that region is spotty since so many gauges have flooded and failed. But runoff has created floods that are double floodstage in regions between Fayetteville and Wilmington. The Cape Fear river is now collecting that run off.

Fllooding in this small region of NC has exceeded that of Hurricane Mathew in 2016.
