Flooding on the Horizon for South Carolina, a Week After Florence

A drone captures the widespread flooding from tropical storm Florence in New Bern N.C. on Saturday

Donald Trump told a Hurricane Florence victim whose home was destroyed by the storm 'At least you got a nice boat out of the deal'.

In cities well inland, like Fayetteville, North Carolina, the floodwaters are continuing to rise, even as the main remnants of the storm moved over the Mid-Atlantic states and into New England on Tuesday.

The South Carolina Department of Public Safety said Thursday night that the 81-year-old was found in his vehicle submerged underwater off Carolina Church Road in Dillon.

"And we have not only the record amounts that have dropped on SC, particularly in this third of the state, but we have the water coming down from North Carolina, because we have three watersheds, three river sheds: the Waccamaw, the Pee Dee, and the Lynches River".

Wilmington, the coastal city 50 miles north of the SC border that was completely shuttered by the storm, remains unreachable by road. An estimated 3.4 million chickens and 5,500 hogs died in the flooding, according to preliminary estimates from the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.

SC governor Henry McMaster estimated his state has already suffered $1.2bn in damage. That figure is less than 2,000 in SC.

Cannabidiol is a non-psychoactive ingredient in marijuana that treats pain but does not get one high. She said she would not be surprised to hear of a similar deal by PepsiCo for its Gatorade drink.

Roy Cooper said he knows the damage in his state will add up to billions of dollars, but said with the effects on the storm ongoing, there was no way to make a more accurate estimate.

The closure affected all lanes of the Interstate at mile marker 175 - just northeast of Florence, S.C. There is no timetable for the road to be reopened.

The storm will continue to sweep through southern New York, Pennsylvania and northern New Jersey.

Two years ago, flooding ruined the baseboards and carpet of the Presbyterian Church of the Covenant in Spring Lake.

"I think he just said have a good time!" the reporter gasped. "Our state took a gut punch, Mr. President, and our people are still reeling", as farmers lose crops, roads remain blocked off and residents lose their homes. The congregation rebuilt, This year, water from the Little River water broke the windows, leaving the pews a jumbled mess and soaked Bibles and hymn books on the floor. Some of them have been washed out entirely. "We take a lot of pride in what we do".

The Waccamaw is expected to reach perhaps 20 feet next week, almost 10 feet past flood stage and two feet past the record set during Matthew two years ago.
