Florence: North Carolina's rivers still rising after record rain

  • Florence’s deluge raises death toll to 32

Bloated rivers gushing downstream toward already flooded cities mean more homes are at risk. Roads are being cleared and the landfill is open to accept storm refuse.

A power outage at a wastewater treatment plant in Wilmington resulted in partially treated sewage water being released into the Cape Fear River, said Reggie Cheatham, director of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Emergency Management. The Little River in Manchester topped Hurricane Matthew's flood record at 32.19 feet.

More than 900 people in North Carolina were rescued from swift waters by Sunday afternoon, Gov. Roy Cooper said in a press conference.

"I can't stress enough: Never drive through floodwaters".

"As we struggle to keep routes open that close up again, we don't need people out on the road unless you absolutely have to be there because we need our first responders, our medical people, our supply trucks and our utility workers to be able to get through", he said. "Roads remain risky, and new road closings are still happening". Twenty-five of those deaths were in North Carolina.

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

With one of North Carolina's largest cities still mostly cut off by floodwaters from Hurricane Florence, officials prepared to begin distributing food, water and tarps to Wilmington residents as yet more people were rescued from submerged inland neighborhoods.

Wilmington was the epicenter of Florence's destruction. Eastbound I-40 at Exit 73 and westbound United States 421 at Exit 385 are now open. I-95 is also closed between exits 19 and 22 in Lumberton because of flooding.

He said that roughly 10,000 people who remain in shelters and "countless more" staying elsewhere.

Good move: Michael Jordan is donating $2 million dollars to assist residents affected by Hurricane Florence.

About 509,000 homes and businesses were without electricity on Monday in North and SC and surrounding states. Water was inches away from the door at Duplicates INK, but that didn't stop Cassidy or his employees. And he got them to safety.

"We're in a floodplain but a hundred-year one", he said as floodwaters lapped at the house's front steps. "If I give you my word, it's gonna get done".

"We are going to have to be smart about recovery and long-range planning".

Cassidy plans to relocate his staff to a building in downtown Conway, WBTW reported.

A one-year-old boy is the youngest victim to have been killed by the storm after he fell out of his mother's hands near Charlotte, North Carolina.

By 7 a.m., remnants of Florence will continue to move through Pennsylvania and into southern NY and northern New Jsersy with heavy rain to the north in the Hudson Valley and parts of New England. It was moving northeast at 13 miles per hour. On Tuesday, the storm's remnants were continuing to soak the mid-Atlantic region and southern New England with heavy rain.

The rain will move off the East Coast by Tuesday night.
