Over 62,000 still without power in the Carolinas after Florence

The National Weather Service radar map shows the rain storm over New Hampshire on Sept. 18 7 a.m

The biggest SC city in the way of flooding from Hurricane Florence is in gridlock.

He and his wife have seen floodwater rush in and damage his home for 22 years - but this time feels different.

Michele Nix, from Kinston, serves as the vice chairman of the North Carolina Republican Party. Residential streets have turned into rivers and freeways have morphed into waterways.

After talking to more residents in New Bern, Trump traveled nearly 15o miles southwest to Conway, South Carolina, a city of nearly 24,000 that has seen record flood levels that surpassed levels from Hurricane Matthew in 2016.

Addressing roughly 10,000 people who remain in shelters and "countless more" staying elsewhere, Cooper urged them to stay put for now, particularly those from the hardest-hit coastal counties that include Wilmington, near where Florence blew ashore on Friday.

The National Weather Service estimated that North Carolina got 8.04 trillion gallons of rain during Hurricane Florence, which weakened and lingered over the Carolinas for days. "The damage in the northeastern part of our state will be catastrophic, surpassing anything recorded in modern history".

"Our organization, the Hornets organization, we take a lot of pride in giving back to our community and our efforts are truly lead by our own and Michael Jordan", Charlotte Hornets President Fred Whitfield said to FOX Business' Stuart Varney on Wednesday.

Authorities have said that 23 out of the 46 counties in SC could potentially be impacted by flooding. Blackhawk helicopters were used to pluck many of them to safety.

In Conway, South Carolina some residents were heading home Wednesday but only to collect their belongings and evacuate again after officials say more flooding could be on the way.

Officials said they didn't know when evacuees would be able to return home to the city, where officials are distributing food and water, and it may be next week before conditions improve drastically since the Cape Fear River isn't expected to crest at the city until Monday or Tuesday.

"They need to be prepared no matter how the skies are looking like, the floods are coming". She told CBS News she doesn't have flood insurance.

Florence is blamed for at least 42 deaths in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.

North Carolina governor Roy Cooper says the state is still tallying its storm damage, but says it will be in the billions.

State-owned utility Santee Cooper in SC is placing an inflatable dam around a coal ash pond near Conway, saying the extra 2.5 feet (76 centimeters) should be enough to keep floodwaters out.

Officers say it appears the water knocked the man's vehicle off the roadway.

On Tuesday, a sheriff's van in Horry County, S.C., was swept away, killing two of its passengers on their way to receive mental health treatment. Corner Donnie Grimsley said Friday morning that he's still working to contact the victim's family before he releases the name. Some areas could stay underwater for weeks, forecasters warned. "SC loves you", he told Trump. "The road may be there, it may not be there".

Officials continue to be anxious about contamination and environmental hazards resulting from the storm, including the potential impact of coal ash, an industrial waste created by coal-burning power plants that can carry health risks.

"And we have not only the record amounts that have dropped on SC, particularly in this third of the state, but we have the water coming down from North Carolina, because we have three watersheds, three river sheds: the Waccamaw, the Pee Dee, and the Lynches River". Over the weekend, Duke also said that flooding had resulted in toxic coal ash spill. While company spokesperson Erin Culbert asserts, "We don't have any indication that the ash has gone to the cooling pond", he has promised to continue monitoring the situation.

"The National Guard is on standby if that's not big enough", Emrick said of the dam. We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analyses from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World. According to the plan, that means a dam failure is either imminent or in progress.

The LV Sutton coal power plant was retired in 2013, and today the plant operates as a natural gas plant, which Duke said continued to operate safely and is being monitored.

The New York Times had the most Florence-related stories that made reference to climate change: 15 out of 75 stories, or 20 percent.

The gridlock is part of the lingering effects of Hurricane Florence, which made landfall last Friday.

When the boy heard that his school could get flooded, he asked his dad whether they could go to his school to pray for it not to flood. "I am heartbroken", she wrote in a text.
