Hurricane Florence Causes Widespread Flooding in The Carolinas

Hurricane Florence Causes Widespread Flooding in The Carolinas

Trump said 1.6 million meals have been provided in North Carolina and another 400,000 are ready for victims in SC.

Kenny Babb retrieves a paddle that floated away on his flooded property as the Little River continues to rise in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence in Linden, N.C. About 20,000 pigs were moved to other states, other parts of North Carolina or to the market, the Pork Council's Curliss said.

In this aerial photo taken September 18, 2018 and released by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, an industrial site and a chicken farm outside Wallace, N.C., is seen that has been flooded by the nearby Northeast Cape Fear River following drenching rains from Hurricane Florence.

In Lumberton, where the Lumber River still covered parts of town, water was deep enough that vehicles passing by on streets sent wakes into partially submerged homes, businesses and a church.

"We're at the end of the line of all waters to come down", said Georgetown County Administrator Sel Hemingway, as he warned the area may see a flood like it has never seen before.

The president vowed to sort that issue out, telling reporters: 'We're going to find out.

"PLEASE DO NOT RETURN", the county said in a tweet.

Roads have been so impassable in Kinston, North Carolina, the National Guard has used helicopters to distribute water. That figure is less than 2,000 in SC.

In North Carolina, flooded rivers have left thousands of evacuees still living in shelters and hundreds of roads underwater.

FDA: Teen Vaping Is An Epidemic
Among tobacco users of all ages surveyed, 45% of daily smokers and 40% of occasional smokers reported also using e-cigarettes. Food and Drug Administration announced a crackdown on the products over concerns about how popular they've become among kids.

As rivers swollen to record levels started to recede Thursday in North Carolina, officials tried to head off potential environmental disasters and prepared for more record flooding downstream in SC.

Some of those who left shelters may have been headed toward the coast on US 421, where a long line of cars, utility crews and trucks loaded with generators sat in a jam.

"Our people took a gut punch", Cooper said after the president's arrival. Authorities told media outlets that the deputies couldn't get the rear doors open, and the two patients drowned inside the van. They have been placed on administrative leave, the sheriff's office said. Flooded roads and farmlands have delayed evaluation efforts.

He said he would be traveling later in the day to SC to inspect more hurricane damage.

President Trump, clearly, has an eye for luxury - even in the most unexpected circumstances.

North Carolina's farmers, meanwhile, are beginning to count up their losses.

The risk of environmental damage from Florence mounted, too, as human and animal waste was washed into the floodwaters.

An estimated 5,500 hogs and 3.4 million chickens and turkeys have already died as a result of Florence, which hit landfall Friday. Compounding the problem, storm runoff from North Carolina - which was battered by Florence - is now flowing through the Palmetto State via the Yadkin-Pee Dee drainage basin, which terminates in Winyah Bay near Georgetown, S.C.

In South Carolina, farmers face damage to cotton, peanut and hemp crops, the state said.
