Hurricane Florence was downgraded to a tropical depression on Sunday,  but the destruction and devastation in parts of North and South Carolina are clear to see from these photos of the storm

At least 13 people have died since the storm made landfall on Friday, and The National Weather Service Weather Prediction Center warned on Sunday of the risk of "catastrophic, life-threatening flash flooding" due to excessive rainfall in North Carolina and parts of South Carolina and southwest Virginia.

Photos of the destroyed homes and submerged roads paint a harrowing picture of what residents are dealing with.
