  • Florence is a 'storm like no other' as deadly flooding leaves 'long road ahead'

To those who lost loved ones, Trump said, "America grieves with you. we're with you all the way".

In a video posted on social media the day before his trip to the region, Trump praised first responders, offered prayers for victims and declared the storm "one of the wettest we've ever seen from the standpoint of water".

The Horry County Sheriff's Department said in a statement that when the waters overtook the van, they rose too quickly for the pair to be saved. "We're going to take care of everybody".

North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper warned that rivers in the state were continuing to rise and causing severe flooding.

The deaths, which have occurred in three states, include those of two women who were being taken to a mental health facility when the van they were riding in was engulfed by floodwaters from the Little Pee Dee River in SC, authorities said.

The closure affected all lanes of the Interstate at mile marker 175 - just northeast of Florence, S.C. There is no timetable for the road to be reopened.

Officials downstream sounded dire alarms, pointing out the property destruction and environmental disasters left in Florence's wake.

· "Some of the hardest work is taking place right now, even though it's nice and handsome and sunny".

At least 36 people have died as a result of the storm, according to CNN.

About 110,000 homes and businesses were still without electricity in North Carolina, about 20 percent in the county where Wilmington is located. Close to 200,000 residents are still without power, and about 7,800 are living in shelters. Others can't get to their neighborhoods because the extensive road closures or simply because they don't have a ride home.

In Conway, South Carolina authorities said residents could see damage in homes that have not flooded before.

"We can attribute that additional rainfall to human-induced climate change", said Kevin Reed, a professor at Stony Brook University's School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, who contributed to the study. 'Because you're going to have a lot of water'. "We are anxious about Friday". Many people in the crowd smiled and raised their phones to record the moment. North Carolina is the top producing state of the tubers, and Smith grows 150 acres of them, only three of which he's been able to harvest so far.

More flooding is expected over the weekend in the aftermath of the storm.

"Boat looks like it's O.K.", came a response from the gaggle.

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.

He said he was confident the state would "build our way out" of what he called possibly the "worst disaster" to hit in its history, with the cooperation of "Team South Carolina" and Trump. And plenty of roads are still closed in the storm's wake. Farmers are also concerned about cotton, sweet potatoes, peanuts and corn, but swamped roads and fields have made it hard to assess the damage.
