Video Shows Animals Stranded by Hurricane Florence Got Rescued in Style

Video Shows Animals Stranded by Hurricane Florence Got Rescued in Style

At least 32 people have been killed by Florence, including 25 in North Carolina and six in SC.

Emergency crews have been delivering food and water to communities in and around Wilmington, while rescuers picked up more people stranded by Florence and the storm's remnants.

"We're in a floodplain but a hundred-year one", he said as floodwaters lapped at the house's front steps.

An abandoned car's hazard lights continue to flash as it sits submerged in a rising flood waters during pre-dawn hours after Hurricane Florence struck in Wilmington, N.C., on September 15, 2018.

The dead included a one-year-old boy, who was swept away from his mother as they tried to escape their vehicle amid floodwaters.

Previously, North Carolina's rainfall record from a storm was 24 inches, set by Hurricane Floyd almost twenty years ago.

The rain has finally stopped in Eastern North Carolina, but the flooding continues, particularly along rivers in the coastal plain that are still rising.

Florence strikes Carolina coast with life-threatening storm surge, flooding, power outages
Emergency declarations were in force in Georgia, South and North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia. More than 3,000 inmates at North Carolina prisons and juvenile detention centers were moved out of the storm's path.

Although Hurricane Florence's immediate impact on the Carolinas wasn't as bad as some people expected, the rains that have been falling on the East coast for the last few days have brought flooding that seems decidedly Biblical. Officials at the center said that its outlying clinics were tentatively scheduled to re-open on Wednesday, but added that actual re-openings were "to be determined based on factors like weather, road and facility condition as well as water and utility availability".

"I think the next 48 hours are going to be incredibly critical", he said.

Chicken farm buildings are inundated with floodwater from Hurricane Florence near Trenton, N.C.

Downgraded from a tropical depression, the deadly storm still had abundant rain and top winds around 25 miles per hour.

"Not only are you going to see more impact across North Carolina. but we're also anticipating you are about to see a lot of damage going through West Virginia, all the way up to OH as the system exits out", Brock Long of the Federal Emergency Management Agency said Sunday on Fox News. "The soil is soaked and can't absorb any more rain so that water has to go somewhere, unfortunately".

Wilmington's mayor said he was working with the governor's office to get more fuel into Wilmington. Forecasters said states in the Northeast are in for as much as 4 inches (10 centimeters) of rain before the system moves offshore again. "So to have other brothers and sisters that don't live here, that say we want to help you do that very thing - that's the church being the church". "We just burned up the airwaves", Alsup said.

President Donald Trump issued a disaster declaration for North Carolina, the White House said Saturday.
