    Robert Simmons Jr. and his kitten, Survivor, are rescued from floodwaters in New Bern, NC, after Hurricane Florence dumped several inches of rain in the area overnight, Sept. 14, 2018.

    Kitten clings for life as man awaits rescue from Florence. The catís name says it all.

    From his seat on the back of a small jon boat, Robert Simmons Jr. surveyed the floodwater in his neighborhood in northwest New Bern. The water, which spilled over from the Neuse River during Hurricane Florence, turned streets into canals, divided by rooftops.

    It was waist deep on some of those streets, and deeper still on others. All around, street signs and trees poked through the water, offering landmarks to a terrain that even longtime residents now found unrecognizable. Simmons has lived here his entire life ó 40 years ó he said, and now he didnít recognize anything.

    ďWe done been through Bertha, Fran, Irene, Matthew,Ē he said on Friday afternoon, sitting in the small boat and ticking off the names of hurricanes that had come through his part of eastern North Carolina. ďAnd this is the worst itís ever been, in this part right here.Ē

    Simmons recounted the story on Friday while a kitten peered through the top of his rain jacket. Simmons had taken the animal with him on the boat. The kitten clung to Simmons, as if a newborn clinging to his mother, and while Simmons spoke, the kitten mewed.

    Both were wet. Both wore tired expressions.

    A photo of Simmons and his kitten has gone viral ó a moment that seemed to capture how thousands like Simmons are feeling as the storm slogs through the area, waters continue to rise, threatening houses and livelihoods.

    Digging in the dirt & scooping in the water!
    I was rooted to the news yesterday, from before landfall to the evening. There was another live video of authorities pulling a cat out of the open water and taking it to safety.

    Just began raining heavy here. Been raining for days but that was the first one to pass through singing thunder on my tin roof.
