  • Trump In North Carolina 'We're Ready...To Do Whatever We Have To Do To Make This Perfect'

Less than a week since Florence made landfall, a huge part of North Carolina remains deluged.

Agriculture is the biggest industry in North Carolina.

President Donald Trump met with first responders in Conway, South Carolina on Wednesday and warned them of the danger of rising rivers.

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 should be enough to keep floodwaters out.

"Got it?" Trump said as he handed two meals to a person in a auto, adding: "Have a good time".

Through tears, she said she has survived hurricanes Floyd in 1999 and Matthew in 2016 but "this has been the absolute worst one".

North Carolina's Gov. Roy Cooper is telling thousands of evacuees not to return home just yet.

The president vowed to sort that issue out, telling reporters: 'We're going to find out.

As Florence was bearing down on the Carolinas last week, Trump reignited the controversy over his handling of Maria by disputing the official death toll of 2,975 in the United States territory, which was compiled by public health experts at George Washington University.

The two deputies escaped the vehicle but were unable to open the doors to get the women out, authorities said.

"Tonight's incident is a tragedy", Sheriff Phillip Thompson told the Greenville News. "We'll have it all taken care of". We work hard to protect and to serve our citizens.

Thousands of rescues have taken place in the Carolinas.

The women are among at least 36 people who have died because of the storm.

About 110,000 homes and businesses were still without electricity in North Carolina, about 20 percent in the county where Wilmington is located.

As lead author Julia Kravchenko concludes, "Poor health outcomes in North Carolina communities adjacent to hog CAFOs may need to be addressed by improving access to medical resources, including disease screenings and early diagnosis, and interventions for conditions that affect infant mortality and low birth weight".

Meanwhile, in Wilmington, residents are cautioned to stay in shelters as utility workers try to restore power to more than 300,000 homes.

"We are cautioning everyone not to be overconfident", City Administrator Adam Emrick said. "The water is going to come back up. We are anxious about Friday".

The city manager told CNN that 12,000 people were "in harm's way". "It's wearing on a lot of people here, trying to keep their sanity together".

These farmers will suffer the greatest impact because of timing.

Sanderson Farms, one of the largest poultry producers in North Carolina, lost 1.7 million chickens on its farms, and 60 of its 880 production chicken broiler houses have flooded, the company said in a news release.

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

"It's all gone", Cavenaugh told WRAL.

Almost 3 feet of rain fell in some parts of North Carolina and almost 2 feet in areas of SC.

"This was an unprecedented storm with flooding expected to exceed that from any other storms in recent memory", Troxler said in a statement.

Hurricane Florence may be gone, but the effects of the storm are far from over.
