Flood victim: "I've never seen it this bad"

North Carolina's Lumber River could reach record levels this week before Hurricane Matthew's flood water recedes

In Robeson County community just off Interstate 74, families were rescuing other family members using nothing more than a four wheeler while others were trapped in a home.

"My grandma and others, they are trapped in the house," said Kerri Freeman.
