Florence death toll rises to 32 as floodwaters linger in North Carolina

Водитель школьного автобуса спас от урагана Флоренс более 60 кошек и собак

North Carolina's Emergency Management department has opened four mass feeding kitchens and has plans to open four more shortly.

Rescue teams searched overnight for a one-year-old boy who was swept away outside Charlotte, North Carolina, after rushing water pushed his mother's auto off the road, the Union County Sheriff's Office said on Facebook.

Wilmington Mayor Bill Saffo told a news conference Tuesday that two routes via Interstate 40 are now open.

Crews conducted about 700 rescues in New Hanover County, where Wilmington is located. They also warned that other routes are still unsafe and sinkholes are developing under some of the flooded roads.

An apparent tornado spawned by Florence's remnants over Richmond, Virginia, killed one person, AP noted.

One of those was responsible for the death of a man just outside Richmond.

The flooding is coming from rivers, rather than the ocean, thanks to the feet of rain that have fallen since Thursday night.

This is the second death in Virginia attributed to Florence. Those figures do not include losses from continuing flooding. The incident occurred after the toddler and his mother became trapped in their vehicle amid rising flood waters.

Additional rainfall will be the heaviest in New Jersey and parts of New England, where there could be an additional 1 to 3 inches of rain. "With every inch of rain, our rivers rise and we'll see significant flooding on into next week.it could be of historic proportions".

Florence, which made landfall Friday on the North Carolina coast, has prompted widespread emergency warnings across all of North Carolina, and even days later its floodwaters threaten to push rivers to all-time highs.

The untreated wastewater entered North Buffalo, a tributary of the Cape Fear River basin.

Officials said Monday evening that 32 deaths have resulted from Florence.

"Flood waters are still raging across parts of our state, and the risk to life is rising with the angry waters", North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said late on September 17, WSB reported. They placed an order and left without having to get out.

Tracie Byrd, a Myrtle Beach resident, recorded the video as the rain poured and wind blew from Hurricane Florence. "As the water recedes things will get better".

O'Shaughnessy is Commander of the U.S. Northern Command and North American Aerospace Defense Command. Officials say flooding could continue to worsen for several days as water flows into the state from flooded areas in North Carolina.

Previously, North Carolina's rainfall record from a storm was 24 inches, set by Hurricane Floyd almost twenty years ago. Officials warned residents to avoid driving around barricades.

One road was opened into Wilmington briefly, and helicopters and military trucks were bringing relief supplies into the stranded city, where hundreds of people have been rescued from the roofs of flooded homes.

The death toll from the storm rose to at least 34 in three states, with 26 fatalities in North Carolina, as Florence's remnants brought downpours to the heavily populated Northeast, triggering flooding in New Hampshire and NY state.
