GREENSBORO, N.C. — Power outages are growing across North Carolina as a result of Hurricane Dorian. 

Nearly 120,000 homes in the eastern Carolinas are without power as of 7:30 a.m. according to the Duke Energy Outage Map

That's a sharp jump from the 69,000 outages that were active around 10:45 p.m. Thursday night. 

However, it's not just a problem with the power but also now with flooding. 

The North Carolina Department of Transportation has reported a number of road closings in various coastal counties due to flooding.
