I-95 remains closed by Florence’s flooding

Sapporo

Emergency workers delivered truckloads of food and water to the coastal city of Wilmington, which remains largely cut off from the rest of North Carolina with just one major accessible route. "But I do know there is a long road to recovery in the days, weeks, months and even years ahead".

The rain finally stopped and the sun peeked through on Monday, but North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper warned that dangerously high water would persist for days.

Also ahead of Hurricane Florence, about 217 sick and disabled patients were moved from the Hampton, Virginia center and transported to other facilities in Martinsburg, West Virginia; Salem, Virginia; Richmond, Virginia; and Salisbury, North Carolina, VA officials said.

The boy's mother drove around a barricade in the road and ended up stuck in rushing water on Sunday evening.

According to The Washington Post, the Marion County Sheriff's Office warned residents on Sunday: "We can not beg you enough to stay off the roads".

The conditions are particularly bad in the southeast corner of the state, in a triangle between Lumberton, Wilmington and Jacksonville.

"BREAKING. We've observed a one-minute period of sunshine at the NWS Raleigh office", the NWS said on Twitter. The recommended detour for southbound traffic is to take I-40 west all the way to Hickory, and get on US 321 south until it meets I-85 in Gastonia. Southbound I-95 lanes also were closed between Exits 81 and 65 in North Carolina. NCDOT has put up barriers on southbound I-95 at US 64 in Rocky Mount to enforce the detour there; local traffic headed to Wilson or Johnston County must take 64 one way or another and find alternative routes to their destinations.

"I urge you, if you don't have to drive, stay off the road, particualrly south of USA 64", Cooper said. The flooding could presist for several weeks in some areas. N.C. 12 has reopened on Hatteras Island, as has US 264 in Pamlico and Hyde counties.

One road was opened into Wilmington briefly, and helicopters and military trucks were bringing relief supplies into the stranded city, where hundreds of people have been rescued from the roofs of flooded homes.

First responders have rescued and evacuated more than 2,600 people as of Monday.

Speaking with members of the press outside of the Craven County Courthouse, Cooper said state and local governments have to figure out how to rebuild their communities after the destruction of Hurricane Florence. "What's open now may become impassable". Our focus now is getting people away from immediate danger.
