  • North Carolina city cut off by Florence floodwaters

Hundreds of people waited in long lines for water and other essentials Tuesday in Wilmington, still mostly cut off by high water days after Hurricane Florence unleashed floods, and North Carolina's governor pleaded with more than 10,000 evacuees around the state not to return home yet.

The slow-moving storm has since been downgraded to a tropical depression and moved into the USA northeast. Sixteen North Carolina rivers were at major flood stage Tuesday, with an additional three forecasted to peak by Thursday. Large mounds of manure are also typically stored at poultry farms.

Some 4,700 people across North Carolina have been rescued by boat or helicopter since the storm made landfall, twice as many as in Hurricane Matthew two years ago, according to state officials.

The N.C. Pork Council, an industry trade group, said the livestock losses from the storm should be taken in the context. Trump said, without offering evidence, that Democrats had inflated the figure to make him look bad. "We believe deeply in our commitment to provide care for our animals amid these incredibly challenging circumstances".

Much of Columbus County, where Fair Bluff is located, was under water, according to Steve Abbott of the North Carolina Department of Transportation, with most roads closed and "driving not advised".

Over 1,200 roads are closed due to flooding, including 356 primary roads.

In addition, the company reported there are about 6.33 million chicken at about 30 farms in the Lumberton area isolated by floodwaters and now unreachable. He said operations were minimally damaged, and the company was looking to relocate chickens that survived to other farms. "What's open now may become impassable".

As of noon Tuesday, the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality said it had received reports of floodwaters inundating or overtopping lagoons at 22 locations, leaving trails of floating excrement. By Saturday, Duke Energy estimated, the storm had washed away more than 2,000 cubic yards of coal waste - enough to fill more than 150 dump trucks. The gray ash left behind when coal is burned contains toxic heavy metals, including arsenic, lead and mercury. The utility said it could not rule out the possibility that coal ash from a dump adjacent to the plant, which formerly burned coal, might be flowing into the nearby Cape Fear River.

Sutton Lake drains into the Cape Fear River. "The roof is leaking, messing up the inside of the house", he said.
