Florence's Wrath Spreads To The Northeast With Heavy Rain

Florence's Wrath Spreads To The Northeast With Heavy Rain

"But I do know there is a long road to recovery in the days, weeks, months and even years ahead".

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper reported 2,600 people have been rescued and evacuated, in addition to 300 animals in the state.

More miles of northbound Interstate 95 in SC, just south of the North Carolina line, have been closed due to flooding from Hurricane Florence, the S.C. Department of Transportation said Tuesday. Elsewhere in North Carolina, an 88-year-old man died after his auto was swept away. "And I just feel like, well, maybe if I can help in some sort of way all of the people, and all of the places, that have helped me along the road".

Although Florence is forecast to "weaken while it accelerates northeastward across the Mid-Atlantic and New England", the storm, which made landfall as a category 1 hurricane, has brought heavy rainfall, with some totals reaching over 30 inches, and high storm surges.

The Coast Guard said it had 26 helicopters and 11 aircraft looking for people in trouble. About half of all homes and businesses were without power Tuesday, a big improvement from a day earlier.

"We still are encouraging or asking folks not to come home", said Woody White, chairman of the New Hanover County commissioners.

The untreated wastewater entered North Buffalo, a tributary of the Cape Fear River basin.

Gov. Henry McMaster, along with emergency state officials, gave a press conference Tuesday afternoon talking about their concerns and preparation for flooding, and the closures of roads. Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott, spokesmen for both lawmakers said.

"We've been going so hard and fast we don't have a number yet", he said.

The city of Wilmington, North Carolina remains largely cut off from the rest of the state.

Mayor Bill Saffo said he was working with the governor's office to get more fuel into Wilmington.

As part of a tour through the city to survey the destruction, Governor Roy Cooper met with volunteers as the vehicle line opened to help pass out a portion of the more than 17,000 meals.

President Trump will travel to North Carolina on Wednesday to survey the impact of Hurricane Florence.

Images captured by Associated Press journalists show flooding caused by Florence in the Carolinas and Typhoon Mangkhut in the Philippines.

On Friday, morning, Lenoir County officials said, a 68-year-old man was electrocuted at a home when he attempted to connect two extension cords outside in the rain.

But the city had received 456 requests for tree debris removal, the report said, with more coming in all the time.

"As we struggle to keep routes open that close up again, we don't need people out on the road unless you absolutely have to be there because we need our first responders, our medical people, our supply trucks and our utility workers to be able to get through", he said.
