Hurricane Florence death toll climbs as flooding spreads

Thousands of fire ants are forming

"I have been one of the lucky ones to move on and build an unbelievable career", said Jordan, who played college basketball at North Carolina.

Applying this type of increase to total loss volumes for North Carolina and SC alone suggests the industry may see tens of thousands of total loss vehicles from Florence alone.

North Carolina's governor, Roy Cooper, warned that floodwaters would linger for days, and urged residents in the path of the hurricane who had evacuated not to return yet.

"I know people are frustrated from having to wait indoors for so long and many people are without power - that has got to be very hard - but even as we speak we are pulling out of floodwaters and are rescuing people".

The death toll from Hurricane Florence has reached 32 while the rivers in the Carolinas continue to rise from the record-breaking storm.

Emergency workers delivered truckloads of food and water to the coastal city of Wilmington, which remains largely cut off from the rest of North Carolina with just one major accessible route.

"It is ridiculous that we don't have enough fuel supplies back in this area", Stephanie Schauer, 39, a contractor, said as she waited her turn at the gas pump. "Things are deteriorating", he said.

Items have been brought into the city by big military trucks and helicopters, which also have been used to pluck hundreds of desperate people from atop homes and other structures.

Crews conducted about 700 rescues in New Hanover County, where Wilmington is located.

President Donald Trump plans to visit North Carolina on Wednesday to see the destruction left behind by Hurricane Florence, as well as the hard relief efforts.

-High water: The Cape Fear River crested at 61.5 feet (18.7 meters) early Wednesday morning, according to the National Weather Service. Sixteen rivers in the state have reached major flood stages, with three more expected to peak in the next two days, he said.

The agency said 13 are overflowing from heavy rainfall and 55 are close to the brim and could overflow if water levels continue rising. "We're seeing this happen now and the result is not good", Cooper said.

In a bright spot, the Lumber River appeared to be falling in hard-hit Lumberton, about 70 miles inland. North Carolina environmental regulators say several open-air manure pits at hog farms have failed, spilling pollution. Authorities also have recovered the body of 1-year-old North Carolina boy who was swept from his mother's arms by floodwaters.

Florence spawned 16 tornadoes Monday in central Virginia, killing one person.
