  • Florence death toll jumps to 31 as flooding wreaks havoc - The Jakarta Post

President Trump took time to speak with homeowners in New Bern, North Carolina where Hurricane Florence brought devastating floods.

Flood waters and downed trees nearly entirely cut off Wilmington from the rest of the state, after Florence dropped more than 2 feet (60 centimeters) of rain over the coastal city. So far, twenty-seven people are reported to have died from the storm and the resulting flooding, a dam has failed, a coal ash landfill has collapsed, and millions of chickens and thousands of hogs have drowned.

Officials distributed goods Tuesday including food, water and tarps to Wilmington, North Carolina, residents who lined up in cars and on foot. "I'm trying to get it all out of my head".

"America grieves with you and our hearts break for you". They still didn't know if their home was ruined.

"Our state took a gut punch", he said at the briefing. "What have we been doing for two years?" The flooding from Florence had subsided, only to get worse again. Many people in the crowd smiled and raised their phones to record the moment. But Battle just couldn't think about that anymore.

"I lost everything in the flooding", he said.

Flooding across the Carolinas was expected to worsen over the next couple of days, forecasters said.

Road travel also was a daunting problem in Wilmington, a city of 120,000 people still mostly cut off from the rest of North Carolina. Residents stuck in the city have lined up to receive food, water and other supplies.

"Understand: There is a lot of water inland, and it is continuing to make its way downstream", county manager Chris Coudreit said.

How much rain fell where you live? As of September 18, there were 1,050 roads closed due to flooding and debris.

A high water team eventually rescued the two deputies who were escorting them. They were placed on leave pending an investigation.

"Please heed the warnings", Sheriff Lane Cribb said.

It wasn't clear why the women were being moved in the aftermath of a killer hurricane, and Justin Bamberg, a lawyer who has represented the families of several people injured or killed by law officers, said he was perplexed by the decision.

Rising water from the Waccamaw River and smaller creeks have started to close bridges around Conway, backing up traffic to the few roads left open.

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

"Now it looks nice, but it's really the calm before the storm", he said. They are also assessing damage to research infrastructure.
