Tropical Storm Florence crawled through the Carolinas on Saturday, causing catastrophic flooding, deaths and damage, reports Fortune.

The epic rainfall threat to the large hog industry and tobacco crops are among the dangers as the storm creeps inland at 2 mph. A deluge is forecast, and more than 2 1/2 feet of rain has already fallen across southeastern North Carolina, the National Hurricane Center said.

Florence, the first major hurricane of the Atlantic season, is expected to cause an estimated $18 billion in damage.
