Hurricane Florence death toll climbs to 37; Donald Trump visits stricken area

Trump pledges support for storm-battered N Carolina

"I'm still hopeful", said Lynn about his home which now has water up to the front step.

"I think it's incredible, I think it's incredible", Trump said. Homes, farms and businesses along Route 117, which runs north through this part of the state, stood in 2ft of water on Tuesday, while stretches of the route were closed due to flooding.

Officials across the state are cautioning residents that more floods are expected this week.

"Understand: There is a lot of water inland, and it is continuing to make its way downstream", county manager Chris Coudreit said.

The death toll from Storm Florence has risen to 37 after officials confirmed the deaths of two SC mental health patients, officials say.

Even during a major catastrophe, The Donald has a way of making things about himself-for example, indirectly inquiring about his North Carolina golf course while the state continues to suffer the devastating effects of Hurricane Florence. "We'll have it all taken care of".

Cooper said North Carolina had confirmed a 26th death from the storm, pushing the toll to 33 lives lost so far in the Carolinas and Virginia, including at least three children between the ages of 3 months and 1 year.

And in Conway, S.C., the river is still rising.

Neither woman has an arrest record in SC , according to documents obtained from the State Law Enforcement Division. Two additional investigations including a traffic investigation and an internal investigation are taking place.

A high water team eventually rescued the two deputies who were escorting them.

Trump, who has been criticized for his handling of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico previous year, also thanked first responders for their work since Florence made landfall on Friday and recapped the efforts to get food to residents and restore power.

After submerging North Carolina with almost 3 feet of rain, the storm dumped more than 6.5 inches of rain in the Northeast, where it caused flash flooding.

Addressing roughly 10,000 people who remain in shelters and "countless more" staying elsewhere, Cooper urged them to stay put for now, particularly those from the hardest-hit coastal counties that include Wilmington, near where Florence blew ashore on Friday (Saturday NZT).

Pressure differences drive the winds, which in turn can steer and slow down storms, he said.

Several sewer systems in the region have also released untreated or partly treated sewage and storm water into waterways over the last week, local media reported.

"I'm very pleased with where we are but I know we've got a long way to go, because this event's not over", Long said at the news briefing with Cooper, where he was asked no questions about the investigation dogging him in Washington.

Flooding across the Carolinas in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence, which has killed 36 people, was expected to worsen over the next couple of days, forecasters said.
