President Trump visits North Carolina as governor pleads for patience

A man paddled a kayak through a flooded neighborhood in Fayetteville N.C. Monday

"If she shows up and makes a credible showing, that'll be very interesting", the president said, adding that he "really would want to see what she has to say". Almost 50,000 homes and businesses remain without power in the county where Wilmington is located.

"Have a good time" seems to be Trump's hurricane catchphrase.

US President Donald Trump hands out prepackaged meals to people in cars at Temple Baptist Church in an area impacted by Hurricane Florence, in New Bern, North Carolina.

While he was born in New York, Jordan went to high school in Wilmington, North Carolina, and then attended the University of North Carolina before joining the National Basketball Association via the 1984 NB Draft.

He says he watched the devastation caused by the hurricane on television and has touched base with them to make sure they were safe.

And the effects from the slow-moving storm were still being felt Tuesday as record inland river flooding was impacting areas such as Pollocksville in Jones County, where US 17 was impassable. Power outages also were down, from a high of more than 910,000 to about 200,000, almost all in North Carolina.

However, Trump's description of the hurricane being one of the "wettest" storms in history "from the standpoint of water" caught the eye of many Twitter users.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday promised that North and SC would have strong federal support as they recovered from the devastation of deadly Hurricane Florence, whose floodwaters continue to threaten the region. He has been criticized for his handling of Hurricane Maria, which devastate Puerto Rico a year ago, and more recently for disputing the official death toll of 3,000.

Ford can't name the place or the date of the assault, which makes it impossible even for local law enforcement to investigate. Mike Braun, a former IN state legislator running against Donnelly, also criticised the timing and praised Kavanaugh.

In addition, about 30 Sanderson farms that together house more than 6 million chickens around hard-hit Lumberton, North Carolina, remain isolated by floodwater and out of reach of feed trucks, Sanderson said, noting that the number of dead chickens could increase.

"We continue to feel the effects of this massive storm", North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper said on Tuesday.

Many rivers in the Carolinas are approaching record flood stages and their levels will continue to rise through the week.

The president met Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Administrator Brock Long on the ground in North Carolina. "No community can do it alone", said Eddie Cora, president of the Miami-Dade County Fair & Exposition in a release.

A portion of the roof collapsed at the Starlight Motel near the USA military base at Fort Bragg but there were no immediate reports of casualties.

With Wilmington still mostly an island surrounded by Hurricane Florence's floodwaters and residents waiting in hours-long lines for supplies, North Carolina's governor is pleading with thousands of evacuees to be patient and not return home just yet. On Tuesday, the storm's remnants were continuing to soak the mid-Atlantic region and southern New England with heavy rain.

Trump called Florence "one of the most powerful and devastating storms ever to hit our country" and promised federal support for disaster relief.
