Hurricane Florence by the numbers

Hurricane Florence is slamming into the East Coast, knocking out power in North Carolina, dropping torrential rains and inundating several areas with floodwater.

Here is a look at the dangerous storm by the numbers:

105 mph: As the storm made landfall Friday morning, Wilmington, North Carolina, was hit by a 105 mph wind gust, the strongest wind in the city since 1958.

150: The number of people who needed to be rescued in flooded New Bern, North Carolina, where water levels reached 10 feet overnight. The downtown area, at the confluence of two rivers, is mostly underwater.
