Although Florence is forecast to "weaken while it accelerates northeastward across the Mid-Atlantic and New England", the storm, which made landfall as a category 1 hurricane, has brought heavy rainfall, with some totals reaching over 30 inches, and high storm surges.

The death toll from Hurricane Florence had increased to 32 people on Tuesday morning, as officials rushed to get relief to a North Carolina city still largely marooned from the rest of the state by flood water.

That's the takeaway from recent viral news stories coming out in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence in North Carolina, which are drawing attention to the plight of the animals left behind as owners are forced to flee the flooded region.

The governor said 16 rivers statewide were at major flood stage and more than 1,100 roads were closed.

The White House said U.S. President Donald Trump will visit North Carolina on Wednesday to see the damage. The toxic ash could run off into the nearby Cape Fear River.

Hornets and National Basketball Association merchandising partner Fanatics have also designed a special T-shirt featuring the Hornets logo in the middle of the states of North and SC surrounded by the words "Carolina Strong". FIMAN estimated the damage from flooding in the Lumber River in Lumberton is nearly $35 million.

"It is ridiculous that we don't have enough fuel supplies back in this area", Stephanie Schauer, 39, a contractor, said as she waited her turn at the gas pump.

"Road conditions are starting to improve in some parts of our state but rising creeks, streams and rivers continue to make travel unsafe", Cooper said.

"There's too much going on, " he told a news conference.

Brock Long, head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, appeared with Cooper and said his agency would help restore power and open roads. Further flooding could push up that figure. A few hours later, Florence was downgraded to a tropical storm.

Fire and rescue crews were waiting to go into many areas to assist with structural damage after Florence dumped up to 36 inches (91 cm) of rain on the state since Thursday.

"I know for many people this feels like a nightmare that just won't end", he said.
