Donald Trump Jokes with Storm Victim After Boat Lands in His Yard

Trump will visit SC to survey damage from Hurricane Florence

Cars sit abandoned on a flooded street in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence in Lillington, N.C.

"We're going to be there 100%", Trump told officials at a briefing shortly after arriving at the Marine Corps air station Cherry Point in Havelock, North Carolina.

At least 37 people have died in three states because of the storm; 24 of those died in vehicles, the AP reports.

More than 340,000 people still lacked electrical power, Cooper said.

The president says he wants to say "hello" to everyone from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the military that are working hard to help residents recover from the storm. When the owner said no, the president answered, "At least you got a nice boat out of the deal". "We will never forget your loss". To all those impacted by this bad storm, our entire American family is with you and ready to help.

President Trump traveled to North Carolina to assess the damage. Soaked ground could damage peanut crops, and hemp stems were reported blown over, the state said. Authorities told media outlets that the deputies couldn't get the rear doors open, and the two patients drowned inside the van.

A auto sits in a flooded parking lot at an apartment complex near the Cape Fear River as it continues to rise in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence in Fayetteville, Sept. 18, 2018.

That could be a major problem for residents in the area.

The reason is that climate change is warming the Arctic much more than it is heating up the Tropics, easing the pressure difference between the two, he said in an interview on Wednesday. As floodwaters continue to rise concerns are growing over the environmental and health dangers lurking in the water. In South Carolina, 40 major roads were closed. "God bless you", he said.

The National Weather Service said that a reading of the Rocky River's reach east of Charlotte was unavailable because equipment had been damaged by flooding and other gauges were damaged by debris or were plunged underwater.

"It's going to get rough for SC", he told them.

Though slow-moving Florence has moved into the U.S. northeast, allowing glimpses of sunlight in the waterlogged state, at least 16 rivers remained at a major flood stage with three others set to crest in the coming days, the state said.

The slow-moving storm, which made landfall on Friday as a Category 1 hurricane, has since been downgraded to a tropical depression and moved into the USA northeast.

A potential package that does work under those guidelines would be Hardaway, Thomas and a first-round pick. On Wednesday, Wiggins' older brother, Nick, added credence to those reports with his celebratory tweet.

Standing in front of a massive white boat that was dumped into someone's backyard, the president turned to the crowd. "We will never leave your side and to all those impacted by this awful storm, our entire American family is with you and ready to help".

In the wake of Hurricane Florence, Pollocksville, North Carolina, Mayor Jay Bender spoke to Fox News' Griff Jenkins about the devastating flooding in his town.

Florence was slowly moving northeast, where tornadoes associated with the storm hit Virginia.

Many of those waterways are rising or cresting in the Carolinas, though a few were receding.

"I know for many people this feels like a nightmare that just won't end", Cooper said.

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

"Is everybody OK?" he asked those gathered, assuring them it was "going to be OK".

Addressing roughly 10,000 people who remain in shelters and "countless more" staying elsewhere, Cooper urged them to stay put for now, particularly those from the hardest-hit coastal counties that include Wilmington, near where Florence blew ashore on Friday (Saturday NZT).

He surveyed flooding and received briefings from local officials.

He said his state now has 13 rivers at major flood stage, with 7,800 residents in shelters and almost 200,000 customers still without power.

To the south, daybreak brought a return of floodwaters to Nichols, S.C., which also was inundated by Hurricane Matthew two years ago.

"We had significant rainfall. and we're still anticipating that some of the tributaries are draining into the upper Cape Fear". "He plays down humans' role in increasing the risks, and he continues to dismantle efforts to address those risks", the newspaper said.

Almost 90 centimetres of rain fell in places, and dozens of cities had more than 25 centimetres of rain.
