The National Weather Service is estimating more than 9 inches of rain fell in Rocky Mount and Harrisburg. One video shared on Twitter shows a reporter from Fox Charlotte live on air when a bridge collapsed in front of her.

Footage begins with Roberts reporting on the flash flooding near the Hiddenite Bridge when it suddenly ruptured in half. As the bridge starts to collapse, she yells "OK this is INCREDIBLY SCARY".

Flooding prompted hundreds of road closures, including a few interstate shutdowns and bridge washouts. "Just right here live on TV, we saw the road collapse, that same road that we were just standing on seconds ago, so thank God that we were backing up", she continued.

Roberts and Monte were able to get to safety and were not injured in the incident. The Wake County Sheriff's Office said a child had drowned in Rolesville.

One of the dead bodies was discovered in a camper.

Another person died in a auto accident where a bridge was damaged near Vashti, according to county officials.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. As of Friday, at least two people were missing.

The search will continue at 8am on Friday.

At least four bridges and 50 roadways in Alexander County in the western Piedmont region of North Carolina were damaged by the floodwaters, the authorities said. The closures included hundreds of secondary roads from the mountains to the coast and stretches of highways including I-95 north in Johnston County, I-795 in Wilson, U.S. 311 near the Virginia line in Rockingham County, N.C. 73 in Richmond County and N.C. 209 in Madison County, where state crews worked on Friday to fix the road damaged when a slope failed. Four bridges have been washed away'.

In Charlotte, rescuers evacuated 143 students after Charlotte Corvian Community School became inundated, the Charlotte Fire Department said.

Winston-Salem Journal reports that an additional 38 people were evacuated from Colonial Estates apartments, where nearby Mill Creek overflowed. More than a dozen campers were trapped by the rising water. Some minor street flooding is possible with this morning's high tide across southeastern North Carolina. Flash flood watches have been placed along the mid-Atlantic coast from SC to Virginia.

Numerous water rescues occurred yesterday across the state.

Gillespie says two of the three have been released. "It will be a months-to-a-year fix".

"Just massive amounts of flooding", Gillespie said.
