Million Chickens Drown In Flooding From Florence

Floodwaters inundate a church after Hurricane Florence struck the Carolinas Monday Sept. 17 2018 in Conway S.C US: 350,000 customers without power after Florence

More than 15,000 people remain in shelters and more than 200,000 customers are without power across North Carolina, six days after Florence made landfall as a Category 1 hurricane, according to state officials.

Thousands of rescues have taken place in the Carolinas.

The water level of the Cape Fear River was expected to crest at 61.8 feet by Tuesday.

The Red Cross is supplying food and shelter to people who have been displaced by the storm and the Foundation for the Carolinas is responsible for directing funds to nonprofits in North and SC tasked with providing aid, the release said.

The Environmental Protection Agency said Monday that 16 community water treatment facilities in North Carolina are unable to supply drinking water and that seven publicly owned sewage treatment works are non-operational due to the flooding.

The industry lost about 2,800 hogs during flooding from Hurricane Matthew in 2016.

Sanderson Farms announced Monday that at least 1.7 million of their birds perished when water rising from North Carolina rivers swamped dozens of farm buildings.

"There's no one number, you just can't use one number to give everyone the risk, and that's really what it boils down to", Dellegatto said.

Thousands of residents in Fayetteville, North Carolina, are "in harm's way", according to city officials, because of the Cape Fear River.

Meteorologist Mike Rusnak says the weather service also confirmed a second tornado touched down in Mecklenburg County, Virginia, near the border with North Carolina. Roads are being cleared and the landfill is open to accept storm refuse.

New Jersey and parts of New England could see an additional 1 to 3 inches of rain, as remnants of Hurricane Florence continue to strike.

South Carolina's governor plans to meet with top Department of Defense leaders to discuss the state's response to Florence.

"Don't make yourself somebody who needs to be rescued", Cooper said.

Duke spokeswoman Paige Sheehan said a full assessment of how much ash escaped from the waterlogged landfill is ongoing. In South Carolina, 40 major roads were closed. "The soil is soaked and can't absorb any more rain so that water has to go somewhere, unfortunately". Applying this type of increase to total loss volumes for North Carolina and SC alone suggests the industry may see tens of thousands of total loss vehicles from Florence alone. Power outages in the Southeast also were down, from a high of more than 910,000 to about 310,000, almost all in North Carolina.

In Derry, Fire Chief Chief Mike Gagnon said seven people were rescued by boat Tuesday after water rose 5 to 6 feet outside several small businesses in an industrial area.

Property damage from the storm is expected to total at least US$17 billion (S$23.3 billion) to US$22 billion but that forecast could be conservative depending on further flooding.
