Trump to visit hurricane-stricken North Carolina, death toll at 33

Tropical Weather North Carolina

They asked residents not to return to New Hanover, Brunswick or Pender counties as travel conditions there remain especially unsafe.

"These people have been hit hard and anything we can do to take their mind off what they're going through in the moment, let us do it", said Mary Giles, a volunteer with the organization.

The Coast Guard said it had 26 helicopters and 11 aircraft looking for people in trouble.

The death toll from Hurricane Florence had increased to 32 people on Tuesday morning, as officials rushed to get relief to a North Carolina city still largely marooned from the rest of the state by flood water.

The dead included a one-year-old boy who was swept away after his mother drove into floodwaters and lost grip on him as they tried to escape their vehicle.

Six deaths have been confirmed in neighbouring SC, with the latest being the driver of a pickup truck who drove into standing water in Lexington County.

In some places, the rain finally stopped, and the sun peeked through, but North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper warned that dangerously high water would persist for days.

Wilmington still remains virtually isolated from the remainder of the state due to flooding that has engulfed entire sections of Interstate 40, Highway 17 and Highway 74/76. "The state of North Carolina is going to be with New Bern and Craven County for the long haul", said Cooper. About half of all homes and businesses were without power Tuesday, a big improvement from a day earlier.

No new name was given because through all the transitions Isaac maintained a clearly defined rotation traceable to the original storm.

"We're dealing with some very, very tough situations with respect to the impassable roads coming into the city of Wilmington", Mayor Bill Saffo told residents on Twitter.

The power and danger of slow-moving flood water isn't as easy to visually grasp as, say, a news reporter braving vicious winds to demonstrate the effect.

Compounding problems, downed power lines and broken trees crisscrossed many roads in Wilmington three days after Florence made landfall. The smell of broken pine trees wafted through damaged neighborhoods.

The White House said President Donald Trump will visit North Carolina on Wednesday to see the damage.

"We will do whatever it takes to keep the American people safe", Mr. Trump said.

The National Weather Service released rainfall totals as of 2:00 pm (1800 GMT) for parts of North Carolina.

"It's all kind of a blur", Mr. Monroe said. Meanwhile, people lined up outside groceries and fueling stations.

Also ahead of Hurricane Florence, about 217 sick and disabled patients were moved from the Hampton, Virginia center and transported to other facilities in Martinsburg, West Virginia; Salem, Virginia; Richmond, Virginia; and Salisbury, North Carolina, VA officials said.

"Significant river flooding is expected to continue in the Carolinas over the next week and flood warnings remain in effect across the region", the Department of Energy said Tuesday.

"You gotta take care of home".
