JACKSONVILLE, NC (WFLA/CNN) - As Tropical Depression Florence continues to weaken, people living in parts of North Carolina are still dealing with dangerous flooding.
The downpours that drenched the state have left homes surrounded by or inundated with water. Many roads are also impassable.
On Saturday, a Marine and two first responders tried to drive a Humvee down a flooded road. When the military vehicle ended up getting submerged, a group of good Samaritans came together to rescue the people inside.
According to CNN affiliate WTVD, the good Samaritans were taking supplies across a flooded creek when they saw the Humvee get stuck.
The crew inside safely got out but did have to go back underwater to get their belongings.
