The Latest: Trump assures South Carolina as flooding lingers

Trump will visit SC to survey damage from Hurricane Florence

"I'm trying to get it all out of my head".

Three days before Florence struck, the Washington Post editorialized that Trump was complicit in damage caused by extreme weather.

Florence has killed at least 35 people and left entire towns in North Carolina flooded with muddy, fetid water.

"How's the house?" he asked one person. "We'll have it all taken care of".

President Trump will visit North Carolina on Wednesday to view areas affected by the storm, and Bender said said the president "absolutely" needs to visit Pollocksville and other small towns. "This will be a total lie, but that's what they do, and everybody knows it!"

Murphy said her message for President Trump as he visits the state is, "Next week is a long time - you have to act now". "It's just another hurdle to get over in life".

That would put water levels about 2 feet higher than the river's level just two years ago during Hurricane Matthew.

Cooper warned that the flooding is far from over and will get worse in places.

He says, "There will be nothing left undone". But Battle just couldn't think about that anymore.

The organization said that damage to lagoons and spills appear to be limited to a handful of instances. "I'm just so exhausted".

Charlotte Hornets President Fred Whitfield discusses how his organization and National Basketball Association legend Michael Jordan are helping victims affected by Hurricane Florence.

"They don't know whose boat that is", he added.

"We have a lot of folks who are really, really hurting", he said.

On Wednesday, thousands of evacuees were urged to stay away from their homes, rivers kept rising, and the threat of floods remained high in North and SC.

Almost 90 centimetres of rain fell in places, and dozens of cities had more than 25 centimetres of rain. Ten thousand evacuees remain in state shelters, Cooper said, and hundreds of thousands are without power.

Some of those who left shelters may have been headed toward the coast on US 421, where a long line of cars, utility crews and trucks loaded with generators sat in a traffic jam. "God bless you", he said during a briefing at a marine base in Havelock, North Carolina.

At least 16 rivers remained at a major flood stage, with 3 others set to crest in the coming days in North Carolina, the state said. Rescue teams plucked the deputies from the top of the vehicle. They told him the storm would displace them, the pool account noted.

"We are sorry", Horry County Sheriff Phillip Thompson told reporters Wednesday.

On Monday, Cooper said the picture wasn't even from his Florence coverage, but rather from the aftermath of Hurricane Ike in Texas in 2008. Of those, 27 died in North Carolina, including in Duplin County, where the Sandersons live.

More than 1,100 roads were still closed across North Carolina, Cooper said, including several portions of interstates 40 and 95. Farmers are also concerned about cotton, sweet potatoes, peanuts and corn, but swamped roads and fields have made it hard to assess the damage.

The N.C. Department of Environmental Quality reports that four of the open air pits that store hog waste have structural damage, up from two known pits whose retaining walls were compromised.

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.
