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

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".

"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.

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