Death toll rises to 43 in aftermath of Florence

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

That's the unfortunate reality for numerous millions impacted by Florence.

They passed a auto buried in floodwaters Tuesday and called out to see if anyone was in it. They still didn't know if their home was ruined.

The city manager told CNN that 12,000 people are "in harm's way". "It's just hard to explain". "This will be an on-going process and we are continuing to evaluate the regions' needs with the goal of assisting impacted communities return to normalcy as quickly as possible".

The animals killed by Florence will be buried, composted or "rendered" for usable parts, state officials said. Both became major hurricanes over the central Atlantic hundreds of miles north of the Caribbean, and both weakened as they neared the Carolina coast.

Officials in North and SC warn that the flooding danger is far from over, with SC also ordering more evacuations as rivers rise.

The potatoes can be picked by hand, but "we use a plow that flips them out of the ground", he said.

He added: 'We need it, and we have it, and we will be applying it, and there will be nothing left undone'.

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.

Almost 19 inches (48 centimeters) of rain fell over the city of Kinston, which was flooded by Neuse River waters rising to over 20 feet (6 meters).

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

His dad, Brad Whiteis, told him about Hurricane Florence and explained to Carter the possibility of flooding in the coming days.

But they said access to the city of 120,000 was still limited and asked people who evacuated to wait a few more days.

"Please heed the warnings", Sheriff Lane Cribb said. Bridges are starting to close because of flooding, he said, and friends were struck in traffic for hours trying to cross the town of 23,000. "Many roads remain impassable".

Professional disaster recovery services work to cleanup storm damages at the New Bern Grande Marina Yacht Club in New Bern, N.C., September 21, 2018. By Tuesday, it had topped 60 feet - and it still hasn't crested.

"We can attribute that additional rainfall to human-induced climate change", said Kevin Reed, a professor at Stony Brook University's School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, who contributed to the study.

The National Weather Service says the river could reach record flood levels late Saturday or early Sunday. "We do not expect the losses to increase significantly, though floodwaters continue to rise in some locations and circumstances may change".

But there are glimmers of hope in the wake of Florence.

A dam breach in North Carolina is threatening to pollute a large river with toxic coal ash from a power station. "It's just another hurdle to get over in life".

"This isn't a river ... this is Interstate 40", the state's transportation department tweeted, along with drone footage of the scene.

Wilmington was the epicenter of Florence's destruction.

When Matthew hit the state, it flooded more than 140 hog and poultry barns, more than a dozen open hog waste pits and thousands of acres of manure-saturated fields, the Environmental Working Group and Waterkeeper Alliance reported. More than 86 inches of rain have fallen so far.

In Lumberton, where residents scrambled to plug the levee system, parts of Interstate 95 will remain closed until the Lumber River drops below 21 feet. Walters estimated the current depth is about 25 feet.
