Watch the Coast Guard in North Carolina in action, rescuing people and pets in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence.

The deadly storm (at least 17 people confirmed dead ) was still dumping rain and had top winds around 30 mph early Monday, but forecasters said it was expected to gradually pick up forward speed and complete a big turn toward the Northeast.
