Trump was apparently talking to an older man whose home had been damaged after a large yacht had washed ashore and was shipwrecked against the wooden deck of his porch. Using the average rainfall over the state, Florence dropped about 8.04 TRILLION gallons of rain on NC. Residential streets have turned into rivers and freeways have morphed into waterways.

Thirty flood gauges in North and SC showed flooding on Saturday, according to the National Weather Service.

That Hurricane Florence broke rainfall records for tropical storms in both North and SC shouldn't be surprising, as global climate change has increased extreme precipitation in all areas of the continental United States.

More than 1,100 roads were still closed across North Carolina, Cooper said, including several portions of interstates 40 and 95.

"People should always assume that flood water is always contaminated", Betsey Tilson of the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services, said.

Dakota Smith, a meteorologist for Weather Nation, has shared more than a dozen similar before-and-after scenes using NOAA's aerial imagery on Twitter.

Kevin Tovornik was scrambling to prepare for flooding in Conway, South Carolina. "We've never seen one like this. a storm like no other". Raised in barns, they can become trapped and drown in floods.

Yesterday afternoon, this news outlet was tracking a live webcam of the river sponsored by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) when we noticed the bridges spanning the Great Pee Dee were under siege from rising floodwaters ...

"Tonight's incident is a tragedy", Sheriff Phillip Thompson told the Greenville News.

The death toll in the aftermath of Florence reached 37 as of Wednesday, according to the Associated Press.

Roy Cooper's office said Friday evening that there are now 32 confirmed dead in that state.

"PLEASE DO NOT RETURN", the county said in a tweet. Corner Donnie Grimsley said Friday morning that he's still working to contact the victim's family before he releases the name.

North Carolina's Department of Environmental Quality said on Tuesday that the walls of four pits holding hog waste, known as lagoons, had given way because of the storm, thirteen pits had overflowed due to rain, and nine were inundated by floodwaters. "You better pray. I think we all need to pray that it don't happen". "The road may be there, it may not be there".

"We are behind you from day one from three days ago and now it looks nice but it's really the calm before the storm", President Trump said.

South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster says a health care company has donated $500,000 to a fund created to help people in the state during disasters.

The company noted it has been excavating the plant's ash ponds since 2014, and has removed about 90 percent of it. Environmentalists worry the toxic coal ash stored there could spill into the Cape Fear River. Both became major hurricanes over the central Atlantic hundreds of miles north of the Caribbean, and both weakened as they neared the Carolina coast.

An earlier statement from Duke Energy explained the LV Sutton coal power plant was retired in 2013, and today the plant operates as a natural gas plant.

A young boy turned to prayer when he learned that even more flooding is headed to the Carolinas.

His dad, Brad Whiteis, told him about Hurricane Florence and explained to Carter the possibility of flooding in the coming days. And they're my friends and they have gone through the tough stuff.
