Trump gets firsthand look at Hurricane Florence distress

Boatswain's Mate Dimitri Georgoulopoulos looks out as members of a punt team with the Coast Guard perform searches through flood waters in the May Fair neighborhood in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence

Wilmington, population 120,000, was still mostly an island surrounded by floodwaters, and people waited for hours Tuesday for handouts of food, water and tarps.

Residents of SC are preparing for another deluge of water in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence, which has killed at least 40 people.

Now Smith, who counts himself lucky that his flock survived, is looking to quickly move his chickens to processing plants before the weekend, when more showers are forecast and the nearby Neuse River may flood further.

"Over the next couple of days it's going to get rough in South Carolina", Trump told a crowd gathered at the Horry County Emergency Operations Center.

More than 110,000 customers in North Carolina still did not have electricity by Thursday afternoon.

South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster agrees.

Interstate 95 runs from the Canadian border to Miami, Florida - covering 1,917 miles and passing through fifteen states (more than any other Interstate in America). Officials warned more than 10 percent of the county's 61,000 residents might have to evacuate sometime next week, but called that a worst-case scenario and they couldn't give any specific forecast.

Samsung Galaxy A7 official, leaves A Galaxy Event to A9 Pro
The dimensions of this model measure 41.9×45.7×12.7mm and it weighs 49 grams while supporting 22mm interchangeable straps. Also, the Galaxy Watch is compatible with devices running at least Android 5.0 or the iPhone 5 and later based on iOS 9.0.

On Friday, Emrick told CNN, "We expect Main Street will flood today". Even on seemingly safe roadways, vehicles can quickly be overcome. Early farm reports confirm pre-storm worries about losses to tobacco, cotton and corn crops. The National Weather Service said the river could reach record flood levels late Saturday or early Sunday. Aside from the Duke Energy breach, state-owned utility Santee Cooper in SC is placing an inflatable dam around a coal ash pond near Conway, saying the extra 2.5 feet (76 centimeters) should be enough to keep floodwaters out.

Speed is key. As livestock carcasses degrade, they release fluids, gases and a slew of toxic chemical, biological and radiological compounds, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has said. Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall. They have been serving up 20,000 meals a day to feed first responders as well as storm evacuees.

"The David Tepper Charitable Foundation and Carolina Panthers Charities are working with frontline partners across the Carolinas to provide aid and critical resources to help communities begin recovering in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence", said Panthers Owner David Tepper.

And in yet another miserable twist of nature, floating balls of fire ants have emerged, like the ones that plagued Harvey survivors in the Houston area.

"I'm just assuming, based on the depth of the water that we had in North Carolina and the amount of rainfall, that we probably will exceed what we had in Matthew", Commissioner Steve Troxler said in an interview after flying over flooded areas. "I've already been bitten".

Tovornik wanted to go back to his house on Friday for more preparations, but with bridges starting closing all around Conway because of floodwaters, the few open roads were jammed.

North Carolina is the country's No. 2 swine-producing state, its leading producer of tobacco and a major poultry producer, making agriculture its principle industry, valued at $87 billion.
