Michael Jordan donating $2M to victims

Michael Jordan Donates $2 Million To Hurricane Relief Efforts In North Carolina

Trump is assisting volunteers at Temple Baptist Church in New Bern, North Carolina, Wednesday.

Mr. Trump is traveling to North Carolina, a state where 343,000 people are still without power after bearing the brunt of the storm's impact. It's now at more than 60 feet and expected to crest sometime on Wednesday.

Images captured by Associated Press journalists show flooding caused by Florence in the Carolinas and Typhoon Mangkhut in the Philippines.

Two of the SC victims were mental health patients who drowned on Tuesday when a van carrying them was swept away by floodwater. The two officers with them were eventually rescued. The deaths are being investigated.

Officials closed the Little River Bridge to traffic after water levels went over its projected forecast of 34.4 feet. So far, several people have died after being swept up in the storm waters, and falling trees have killed two small children.

Holden says the deputies tried to get the detainees out but couldn't open the doors. Now dozens of people are missing after a massive landslide buried the structures.

However, some sections of I-95 in North Carolina may still be closed, officials warned. "Wilmington truly is my home", Jordan said of his hometown in an interview with The Charlotte Observer on Tuesday.

The latest victims in SC were identified as Wendy Wenton, 45, and Nicolette Green, 43, by the Marion County Coroner, US media report.

The town has largely been cut off by flooding from the still-rising Lumber River, which was expected to crest on Wednesday.

Supplies have been brought into the city by big military trucks and helicopters, which also were used to pluck hundreds of desperate people from homes and other structures. Rivers swollen by days of rain still threaten communities barely touched by the storm.

The Transportation Department advised northbound motorists to take a wide detour around the area by using I-85 from Georgia through South Carolina's Upstate and on to Charlotte.

President Donald Trump and North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper listen while attending a briefing, after Trump arrived at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point to visit areas impacted by Hurricane Florence, Sept. 19, 2018, in Havelock, N.C. Emergency workers reported rescuing and evacuating more than 2,200 people and around 575 animals, he said.
