More flooding for SC, a week after Florence

Hurricane Florence River flooding continues to wreak havoc across Carolinas despite storm moving

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.

With the crisis slowly moving to SC, emergency managers on Friday ordered about 500 people to flee homes along the Lynches River. "You will get a lot of water, we see it, it's coming down".

Members of the National Guard work on a long sand bag flood barrier being built by the South Carolina Department of Transportation on U.S. 501 to lesson damage to roads anticipated from floods caused by Hurricane Florence, now downgraded to a tropical depression, in Conway, South Carolina, U.S. September 19, 2018.

The governor said the cooperation with other federal agencies is the best it's ever been, adding "we are confident we will come out of this".

Hurricane Florence is still wearing out the Carolinas, where residents have endured an agonising week of violent winds, torrential rain, widespread flooding, power outages and death. She says relief efforts will be enhanced the more people prepare for these events ahead of time.

Unsafe flooding and evacuations may begin early next week, officials said. "Today is the day that you need to start preparation for those evacuations".

The crisis from Hurricane Florence is slowly moving to SC along with the trillions of gallons of water dumped by the storm.

Sales noted, "The threats posed by Iran's support for terrorism are not confined to the Middle East; they are truly global". In addition, the survey reported a 24 percent decrease in attacks around the world between 2016 and 2017.

President Donald Trump visited the flood-ravaged Carolinas on Wednesday, receiving briefings on the damage done from Hurricane Florence and visiting with residents. "Some locations won't see rivers crest until this weekend and flooding won't subside until next week", he said in a Twitter post.

"Our people took a gut punch", Cooper said after the president's arrival.

About 55,000 homes and businesses remain without power after Florence, almost all in North Carolina, and down from a high of more than 900,000 in three states. About 10,000 remain in shelters.

The Carolina Panthers and team owner David Tepper announced on Thursday an initial relief package meant to help victims of Hurricane Florence.

South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster said the state's resources and personnel have shifted to the Pee Dee region.

More than 33,000 homes and businesses were without power in the Carolinas on Saturday morning.

Paige Sheehan, a spokeswoman for Duke Energy which runs the LV Sutton Power Station, said floodwaters had breached a steel-retaining wall containing a large coal ash dump along the shoreline.
