Michael Jordan Donates $2 Million To Hurricane Florence Relief

Tropical Weather North Carolina

The storm killed at least 11 people in North Carolina, including a mother and child hit by a falling tree, state officials said.

More miles of northbound Interstate 95 in SC, just south of the North Carolina line, have been closed due to flooding from Hurricane Florence, the S.C. Department of Transportation said Tuesday.

A portion of a motel collapsed from the weight of water, which made only the roof of the Starlite Motel visible in Spring Lake in Cumberland County, said Sherita Brooks of the county's Division of Social Services.

At Fayetteville, about 100 miles inland, near the Army's sprawling Fort Bragg, the Cape Fear River had risen about 50 feet toward a crest that was predicted to be more than 25 feet above flood level.

"This is not a river...this is Interstate 40", the North Carolina Department of Transportation said of the video, ABC7 reported.

To date the federal response to Florence has not drawn negative reviews, apart from explosive reports of an inspector general's investigation of FEMA director Brock Long for having federal employees drive him home to North Carolina in government vehicles over a period of a year at taxpayer expense.

Utility crews from multiple states worked to restore power, and outages were down from a high of more than 900,000 to about 320,000 homes and businesses, almost all in North Carolina.

Officials in North Carolina have said over 900 people have been rescued from floodwaters by the US Coast Guard and volunteers.

The remnants of tropical storm Florence are moving through New Hampshire today and heavy rain is in the forecast until tonight. Forecasters said states in the Northeast are in for as much as 10 centimetres of rain before the system moves offshore again.

Officials said Monday evening that 32 deaths have resulted from Florence.

The Person Bridge above Cape Fear was shut down on Tuesday evening amid flooding from Florence.

New Hanover County Commission chairman Woody White said: "Do not come here".

Mayor Bill Saffo said he was working with the governor's office to get more fuel into Wilmington.

"We are struggling to get routes open to places like Wilmington, Columbus County, and Brunswick County-a lot of communities surrounded by water", and Cooper added, "The road situation is very dynamic from hour to hour".

Trump said nearly 20,000 military personnel and federal workers were deployed to help with the aftermath of Florence in the Carolinas and the Mid-Atlantic, and they would "do whatever it takes to keep the American people safe".
