President Trump visited Conway to see damage caused by Florence

Hurricane Florence: Aerial Photos Show Destruction on North Carolina Coastline

"I think it's incredible what we're seeing", the president added. In his words: "I'm trying to get it all out of my head".

Trump, who has been criticized for his handling of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico a year ago, also thanked first responders for their work since Florence made landfall on Friday and recapped the efforts to get food to residents and restore power.

North Carolina is still reeling from Hurricane Florence.

"How's the house?" he asked one person.

Ryan Nichols and David Rebollar have another way of getting to people and animals trapped by floods: a boat they haul from their Texas home to disaster zones.

Cooper warned that the flooding set off by the Southeastern deluge was far from over and will get worse in places.

"I'm focusing on this disaster at hand", he said. And, do you know whose boat that is?

City officials warned still-rising water threatened some neighbourhoods and businesses that seemed safe, but said the worst was almost over and life was beginning to return to normal downtown.

The Department of Public Safety said Wednesday evening that the highway was closed in both directions at the 175 mile marker because of high water levels at the bridges crossing the Great Pee Dee River.

"I'm just assuming, based on the depth of the water that we had in North Carolina and the amount of rainfall, that we probably will exceed what we had in [Hurricane] Matthew", Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler said in an interview, referring to hog losses.

U.S. Rep. David Rouzer, who represents eight suffering from severe flooding, said the state will need to rebuild infrastructure and housing. The loans are available to residents in 31 North Carolina counties and three SC counties, according to the website.

The two deputies escaped the vehicle but were unable to open the doors to get the women out, authorities said. The deputies climbed on top of the van and were rescued; they have been placed on administrative leave. They told him the storm would displace them, the pool account noted.

Sheriff Phillip Thompson said he does not believe the women were in restraints like those sometimes used on psychiatric patients.

Florence and its deluge have washed out the normal contours of life across the Tar Heel State.

"If that road is in an area where it is a flood risk, and waters were rising, why were they driving on that road anyway?" said Bamberg, a state lawmaker.

At least 24 of the victims died in vehicles, and most were in accidents linked to flooding. Cooper pleaded for patience, warning North Carolinians that heading onto the roads could pose intense dangers. Fire and rescue crews were waiting to go into many areas to assist with structural damage resulting from Florence, which has dumped up to 36in (91cm) of rain in parts of North Carolina since Thursday.

"We have a lot of folks who are really, really hurting", he said.
