RALEIGH, N.C. In a final lashing Monday, the sprawling storm Florence triggered tornadoes, flooded communities and left hundreds of roads submerged as it crawled northward out of North Carolina.
There were 25 known deaths from the storm, 19 of them in North Carolina.
One of them was in Union County, where emergency workers Monday found the body of Kaiden Lee-Welch, a year-old boy swept away in rushing water Sunday after his mothers car became trapped in flooding. She was able to free him from a car seat but lost her grip on him in the torrent.
