North Carolina governor says floodwaters still "treacherous" after Florence

A wastewater treatment plant is inundated from floodwaters in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence in Marion South Carolina

The Latest on the effects of Hurricane Florence.

Roy Cooper says about 100 people were evacuated by boat and air after the Cape Fear River breached a levee and flooded a town.

The National Guard and U.S. Coast Guard rushed in to help, with aircraft pilots wearing night-vision goggles.

Risky flooding and evacuations may begin early next week, officials said.

He says first responders "continue to show unflinching courage in the face of danger".

Flooding could begin early next week, officials said during a community meeting on Thursday.

In South Carolina, the flooding has damaged cotton, peanut and hemp crops.

Gray material, which the company said is a lightweight coal combustion by-product, could be seen floating on top of the lake.

Nests of poisonous fire ants were seen in flood waters across North Carolina, after Florence battered the region with heavy downpours over the weekend.


At least 44 people have died since the hurricane slammed into the coast last week.

As the storm roared ashore, it unleashed a huge surge of ocean water that swamped some coastal areas such as New Bern, North Carolina.

"Please heed the safety messages", said state Highway Patrol Col. Glenn McNeill, who oversee the agency's troopers. Corner Donnie Grimsley said Friday morning that he's still working to contact the victim's family before he releases the name.

Florence hit North Carolina on 14 September as a category one hurricane travelling at very slow speeds across the eastern US.

Floodwaters have killed nearly three-and-a-half million chickens and over 5,000 hostages.

A new round of evacuations was ordered in SC as the trillions of gallons of water dumped by Hurricane Florence meanders to the sea, raising river levels and threatening more destruction.

Cooper said Saturday that nine of the state's river gauges are at major flood stage and four others are at moderate flood stage. They were met by silty mud on walls and floors, blown out windows and awful odors.

McMaster estimated the damage from flooding in his state at $1.2 billion. He asked Congress for help.

South Carolina's Department of Transportation (SCDOT) ordered Interstate 95 in Florence County closed at around 6:00 p.m. EDT on Wednesday evening - hours after this news outlet sounded the alarm about rising flood waters spilling over the banks of the Great Pee Dee River.
