Michael Jordan donating $2M to Hurricane Florence victims

ASSOCIATED PRESS           Farm buildings are inundated with floodwater from Hurricane Florence near Trenton N.C

That's the takeaway from recent viral news stories coming out in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence in North Carolina, which are drawing attention to the plight of the animals left behind as owners are forced to flee the flooded region.

Thousands of rescues have taken place in the Carolinas. That's because higher prices are the best indicator of which goods people want most.

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

Distribution centers are providing meals and water after floods largely cut the city off from the rest of the state for nearly four days.

Jordan is donating $1 million each to the American Red Cross and Foundation For The Carolinas' Hurricane Florence Response Fund. The toxic ash could run off into the nearby Cape Fear River.

The death toll from Florence rose to at least 32 in three states, with 25 fatalities in North Carolina, as remnants of the once-powerful Category 4 hurricane - now reduced to a rainy, windy mass of low pressure - speeded up toward the heavily populated Northeast. "I'll tell you what, though, we are delighted to have had the attention and communication with President Trump and with (his) administration - officials and cabinet members". Two Kinston men died during Florence: a 68-year-old electrocuted while trying to connect two extension cords in Florence's torrential rains to power a generator, and a 77-year-old blown to the ground when he went outside to check on his hunting dogs during the storm.

Brandon Echavarrieta struggled to stay composed as he described life post-Florence: no power for days, rotted meat in the freezer, no water or food and just one bath in a week. On Tuesday, logs and other debris became trapped under a rail bridge as rushing brown water pushed against the span. Four people were killed by rising waters in Florence's wake, the sheriff's office said.

The storm dumped more than 8 trillion gallons (30 trillion liters) of rain on North Carolina, the weather service said.

In addition, the company reported there are about 6.33 million chicken at about 30 farms in the Lumberton area isolated by floodwaters and now unreachable.

In South Carolina, just south of the North Carolina border, I-95 travels through especially low-lying swamp land, and over the Great Pee Dee and Little Pee Dee rivers.

Brock Long, head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, appeared with Cooper and said his agency would help restore power and open roads. More than 300 businesses were damaged, and 455 people needed rescuing from the swirling flood waters strong enough to toss unmoored boats into backyards.

More than 324,000 customers, mostly in the Carolinas, were without power on Tuesday, according to power companies, down from a peak of almost 1 million outages.
