The first images from inside Hurricane Florence’s assault on North Carolina emerged Friday morning, as the residents closest to the chaos posted stunning videos of massive rivers forming where highways had been and flood waters rising up the sides of homes.

As the driving rain and pounding winds reached land Friday, a few of the locals who decided to ride out the storm reached for their cameras to capture Florence’s fury from a firsthand perspective.

Although several communities along the coast had mandatory evacuation orders, many people still chose to stay behind, putting them in a prime position to shoot and post videos of the terrifying onslaught.

The article goes on to state the following:

One woman tweeted a video taken by her neighbor, Amy Johnson, showing flood waters in Belhaven, North Carolina, rising up to the windows of a house. The flooding was caused by overflow from the Pungo River, she wrote.

Below are several more videos that residents and local reporters have posted of the initial damage and storm surge.
