LUMBERTON, N.C.  Brittany Graham had been confident that Hurricane Matthew would bring no more than a few inches of rain to this inland city. But by Sunday afternoon, her grandfathers small farm was underwater.

.

A grazing field was submerged. No one knew where most of the cows were. Floodwaters, perhaps three or four feet deep in some places, had covered the wheels of two trucks and flowed into a supply barn. Relatives squealed as they watched fish from the familys pond swim across the road.

.

My grandpas still in shock, Ms. Graham, 29, said. He didnt prepare anything because from what we heard, we were just going to get a little bit of rain. Basically, all his stuff is ruined.

.

This, she added, is completely devastating.

.

Here in Lumberton, and in much of eastern North Carolina on Sunday, residents were taking stock after Hurricane Matthew pounded the state over the weekend with a furor that seemed improbable days earlier. North Carolina officials reported eight deaths, a figure that accounted for nearly half of the hurricanes death toll in the United States, and Gov. Pat McCrory warned that the casualty count was expected to increase.

Still, dozens of boat and aircrews rescued more than 1,000 people, more than 700 of them in Cumberland County, which includes Fayetteville and Fort Bragg. The state also had countless informal evacuations and rescues, strung together by residents and visitors who sometimes acted with little warning.

.

Melissa Fineman, the general manager of a Comfort Suites hotel in coastal Brunswick County, had retreated to her room on Saturday night when she heard creaking in the building, which was filled with evacuees and linemen from a local utility company.

.

The pressure and the gusts just started cracking the walls, she said. With each gust of wind, it just got wider and wider.

.

Ms. Fineman decided to empty the hotel. After a door-to-door effort that she said took just minutes, the propertys 123 guests, and their 45 animals, had escaped through a back stairwell, ultimately fleeing to a nearby high school and escaping the wrath of a storm that once seemed poised to spare this state.
