Florence aftermath is a ‘nightmare’ of swollen rivers, flooding and rising deaths

Trump will visit SC to survey damage from Hurricane Florence

President Donald Trump on Wednesday visited North and SC, where flood levels continue to rise in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence. "There will be nothing left undone", he said. You're going to need it.

Mr. Trump recently disputed new findings that Hurricane Maria's death toll was far greater than originally estimated in Puerto Rico, placing blame on Democrats for inflating numbers to "make him look bad".

Jordan's family still has deep ties to the Tar Heel State, including a nephew who is now enrolled at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.

With Wilmington still mostly an island surrounded by Hurricane Florence's floodwaters and people waiting for hours for handouts of necessities like food, North Carolina's governor is pleading with thousands of evacuees to be patient and not return home just yet. Many roads remained closed, and thousands of people lack power. The evacuation shelter in the city was evacuated as floodwater rose on Monday, with many residents bussed to Pembroke, 15 miles away.

The Sandersons said they raised their home in 1999 after Hurricane Floyd almost wiped it out.

Goldsboro was also still flooded.

The N.C. Department of Agriculture issued the mortality totals as major flooding continues in the state due to the storm's drenching rains.

Although the storm is long gone, river flooding still poses a danger.

According to the White House pool report from New York Times journalist Mark Landler, Trump gazed at the yacht, saying, "Is this your boat?"

On Tuesday night, the majority of hotels to the north of Fayetteville were fully booked as people rushed to escape the flood.


The city manager told CNN that 12,000 people are "in harm's way".

Florence made landfall as a Category 1 hurricane last week, and has killed at least 36 people, authorities said.

Among the dead were two detainees who died in a Horry County Sheriff's Office transportation van in SC floodwaters.

President Donald Trump is getting an update on how SC is recovering from Hurricane Florence.

Trump told reporters as he departed the White House that he will also visit SC before he returns to the White House later Wednesday.

The town has largely been cut off by flooding from the still-rising Lumber River, which was expected to crest on Wednesday.

The barrier island community of Emerald Isle started feeling the impacts of Florence more than a day before the hurricane made landfall, and a USA government water monitoring gauge ultimately recorded water levels over 6 feet (2 meters) above normal there.

"We're ready.to do whatever we have to do to make this flawless", Trump said Wednesday. 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.

After storms a year ago, Trump made quick visits to the damage zones in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico.
