New evacuations ordered because of Florence flooding

State-owned utility Santee Cooper in SC is placing an inflatable dam around a coal ash pond near Conway, saying the extra 2.5 feet (76 centimeters) should be enough to keep floodwaters out.

Leaders in the Carolinas warned residents not to get complacent as it became plain that additional horrors lie ahead before things get much better.

In a 2015 interview, Tim Davis, an entomologist and senior extension agent with Clemson University said: "If the water rises, they kind of all grab a hold of each other, and they can do this for several days, until they reach higher ground".

As floodwaters from former-Hurricane Florence's massive rains continue to flow through the Carolinas, the end of the storm's damage is nowhere in sight.

Trump is expected to arrive at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point in Havelock, North Carolina at about 10:30 a.m. local time and return to Washington D.C.at 6:15 p.m., according to the White House.

More than 5,000 people have been rescued from the storm and the subsequent flooding, twice as many as during Hurricane Matthew, the governor told reporters.

The interstate has been closed intermittently to traffic throughout the week as roads flooded in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence.

As rivers swollen to record levels started to recede Thursday in North Carolina, officials tried to head off potential environmental disasters and prepared for more record flooding downstream in SC. No improvements were made to the area after Matthew, she said, and a frustrated Mauer has no faith any will happen now. "If the sheer number of animals makes evacuation extremely difficult or impossible, then a hard look needs to be taken at the number of animals being cared for and the opportunity for them to be considered in an emergency plan". "Same levee. Same dams".

Two years ago, flooding ruined the baseboards and carpet of the Presbyterian Church of the Covenant in Spring Lake.

The Waccamaw is expected to reach perhaps 20 feet next week, almost 10 feet past flood stage and two feet past the record set during Matthew two years ago. "But I continue to see signs of hope and resilience". A photograph posted by the state transportation agency showed flowing water and buckled asphalt on a highway that had been one of the few passable routes into the city, where officials have distributed food and water to residents.

In Cooper's state on Friday, environment concerns were raised after an energy utility spokesperson said that a dam containing a large lake at Wilmington power plant has been breached by floodwaters, with potential for coal ash from an adjacent dump to be loosed into the Cape Fear River. By the time they got loaded into their van, water was waist-high and they had to slog through a foul-smelling soup to get to a neighbor's pickup.

Trump told the victims "America grieves with you" and "we're with you all the way".

"The damage in the northeastern part of our state will be catastrophic, surpassing anything recorded in modern history", he added. He asked Congress for help.

In the wake of Hurricane Florence, Pollocksville, North Carolina, Mayor Jay Bender spoke to Fox News' Griff Jenkins about the devastating flooding in his town.

Something else could be a problem, though.

Amtrak announced that it will resume passenger train service in and through North Carolina on Thursday.
