GREENSBORO (WFMY) - Florence has finally moved on from North Carolina, but we're still learning just how incredible this storm was.
The National Weather Service tweeted a graphic Tuesday morning showing the estimated rainfall totals throughout the state. The greater Wilmington area got a radar-estimated 30 to 50 inches of rain with areas like Morehead City and Havelock shaded in the 20-30 inches area.
Estimated total rainfall across the state from Florence? A staggering 8.04 trillion gallons!
The amounts are unofficial, but still a good look at the gravity of Florence. The storm hit as a Category 1 hurricane near Wrightsville Beach Friday morning and moved slowly across the Carolinas, leading to historic rain.
The North Carolina Dept. of Transportation posted a stunning video on Twitter of Interstate 40 in Pender County. Parts of I-40 are covered in water and look more like a river.
