Dangerous driving: Northbound utility crews plow through water covering U.S. 17 at rain-swollen Royal Oak Swamp in Supply on Sunday morning, Sept. 16. All other traffic was being directed by the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office to turn around. There is also hazardous high water covering the southbound lanes of U.S. 17 between Supply and Shallotte, with water levels expected to rise even more as Hurricane Florence continues to drench the Carolinas.
Florence-fueled flooding continues to pose road dangers

Life-threatening flooding is the latest danger posed by Hurricane Florence, which has left trillions of gallons of water and damages estimated in the billions of dollars, including to roads, in her wake.

As Brunswick County residents who evacuated struggle to return to their homes, the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office was urging people this week to stay put because of impassable water-covered roads, especially from the north and west.
