The agency said 13 are overflowing from heavy rainfall and 55 are close to the brim and could overflow if water levels continue rising.

The death toll from the storm rose to at least 32 in three states, with 25 fatalities in North Carolina, as remnants of the once-powerful Category 4 hurricane - now reduced to a rainy, windy mass of low pressure - dumped rain on the heavily populated Northeast.

Officials says "danger still immediate" as record flooding continues to plague parts of the USA state.

Rescuers have saved about 700 people in New Hanover county, where Wilmington is located, and 2,600 people across the state.

At least one North Carolina dam has breached so far under the strain of Florence's flooding, but officials say no homes were affected.

Items have been brought into the city by big military trucks and helicopters, which also have been used to pluck hundreds of desperate people from atop homes and other structures.

Businesses were re-opening and owners removed sandbags and plywood from storefronts.

In addition, about 30 farms near Lumberton have been isolated by flood waters, hampering the delivery of feed to animals.

Officials are urging residents to pick a side of the Cape Fear River and stay there until the bridge reopens.

The governor said 16 rivers statewide were at major flood stage and more than 1,100 roads were closed.

Six people were also killed in SC and one in Virginia, reports said. Power outages in the Southeast also were down, from a high of more than 910,000 to about 310,000, almost all in North Carolina.
