More flooding for SC, a week after Florence

Trump to visit North Carolina as governor urges residents to be patient

A final question: what effect did the widespread development in the Wilmington area have on how Hurricane Florence impacted the area?

While some roads are not flooded, they may have damage and hazardous debris that makes it risky to drive or walk on them, state officials said.

However, a portion of I-95 remained closed Friday over the border in North Carolina at Exit 13, the S.C. Transportation Department warned in a news release.

Florence, which barreled into the Carolinas last week as a Category 1 storm and has since been downgraded to a tropical depression as it turned toward the northeast, has claimed at least 37 lives.

A boat lies smashed against a auto garage, deposited there by the high winds and storm surge from Hurricane Florence along the Neuse River in New Bern, N.C., on September 15, 2018.

McMaster estimates the storm recovery will cost about $1.2 billion, according to the letter he sent to the state's congressional delegation.

President Donald Trump arrived Wednesday in North Carolina to see the destruction Hurricane Florence left behind and the challenging relief efforts that are underway.

"We've never had it at those levels before, so we don't really know what the impact will be just yet", he said.

"They didn't clean the ditches", she said.

The 5,500 hog deaths from Hurricane Florence have already exceeded the 2,800 killed during Hurricane Matthew, the industry trade group wrote in a statement Tuesday.

The South Carolina state public safety department said in a Twitter message Thursday evening that the body of an 81-year-old man was found in a pickup truck submerged in water in Dillon county.

The president traveled south Wednesday as the region continues to grapple with the aftermath of a storm that North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said was "epic".

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

Trump then visited a church in heavily hit New Bern, North Carolina, where he helped hand out meals to victims of the flooding.

"They got hit, but the big hit comes days later and it will be the biggest they've ever had", said Trump, who visited North and SC this week.

The tragic incident occurred near the Little Pee Dee River, which continues to rise as water from upriver North Carolina makes its way into South Carolina's waterways.

Along the Cape Fear River, David and Benetta White and their four children were given short notice to evacuate overnight as floodwaters swept over their property. The governor asked for help "cutting red tape" to get his state the federal assistance it will need to recover.
