Forecasters Say Florence's Heavy Rain Threat Continues

Forecasters warned that Florence isn't finished dumping  "widespread heavy rains"  over the region.   At least 17 people  have died since Florence  made landfall  Friday in North Carolina as a Category 1 hurricane.

It has since weakened to a tropical depression.

Florence has broken the Tar Heel State's record  for most rainfall  from a tropical storm.  The New York Times reports  more than 1,000 people have needed rescue from rising floodwaters.

More than half a million homes and businesses in the Carolinas were  still without power  Monday morning.

The National Hurricane Center reports Florence is slowly picking up speed.

The storm was moving north-northeast at 13 mph Monday —  up slightly from 10 mph  Sunday night.

Flash flood watches are still in effect for much of the East Coast.

Officials say Florence could weaken again before "re-intensifying as it transitions to an extratropical cyclone" over the next couple days.  Additional reporting from  Newsy affiliate CNN .
