"Well, we've lived here for a couple of years, the house has been here for almost 300 years and it has survived a lot of storms and floods. So we are hoping for the best, I'm worried a lot about my neighbors down the street where it gets really low but I think maybe everything will be ok, people are getting prepared. We plan to stay."

"I did go pick up some sandbags, everything is up off of the floor from the hurricane last week. So we just left things like they are from last week."

"We are packing up the entire store and trying to get it to a safe place and get it to where it will be dry because we don't know how much water is going to come this way. We are hoping after doing this we can come right back in after, but right now we're just not sure so are trying to be on the safe side and pack it up and get it out so it won't get ruined."

Eleven days ago, Lee Gantt was at a Hurricane Florence party in her neighborhood in Georgetown, South Carolina, where the story goes that some houses haven't flooded from the Sampit River since they were built before the American Revolution.
She will spend Tuesday with sandbags, watching the nearby river rise from Hurricane Florence's heavy rains and seeing if their luck finally runs out on her home built on Front Street in 1737.
Several blocks up Front Street, the main business district was busy, but with people leaving. All along the sidewalk were piles of artwork, antiques, and boxes as owners emptied out their inventory to take to higher ground.
Tomlinson, a department store, sent an empty truck normally used to stock stores, and employees rushed to fill it with everything. The store has never flooded, but predictions call for up to 5 feet of water by Thursday.
"The anticipation has been nerve-wracking. Though, I'm glad we had the time to do this," said district manager Kevin Plexico.
The Sampit is one of five rivers that reach the Atlantic Ocean in and near Georgetown on the South Carolina coast. And Florence - which arrived as a hurricane dumping record rainfall in North Carolina - is expected to cause record flooding downriver in Georgetown County as its final act. So much water is coming that it is backing up other rivers that aren't even flooding.
And still more is coming: The National Hurricane Center said a broad area of low pressure about 300 miles south of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, is producing showers and thunderstorms on its north side.
Forecasters said it could become a tropical depression Tuesday as it approaches the coast, and will dump rain regardless on coastal areas of North and South Carolina.
The county has recommended almost 8,000 people leave their homes - more than 10 percent of the population. Officials expect floodwaters to top several bridges, nearly cutting Georgetown County in two and leaving only one highway out during the expected crest early Thursday.
