Days after the storm formerly known as Hurricane Matthew moved out to sea, people far inland in the Carolinas faced new flood dangers Tuesday as officials warned residents along rain-soaked rivers to evacuate. Crews worked for hours to try securing a dam in danger of breaking in Moore County, N.C., west of Fayetteville, Deputy Public Safety Director Scott Brooks said. He added that the evacuation ordered late Monday in that area was the second in the last three days. Rescue teams were returning to work across eastern North Carolina as the deluge moved downstream toward the Atlantic Ocean. At least three rivers were forecast to reach record levels, some not cresting until Friday.
