Florence rainfall totals for North Carolina: 8 trillion gallons

"This sanctuary was built in 1909, and it never flooded until Hurricane Matthew", Benfield said. He rationed the feed he had on-hand as best he could, and used 250 gallons of diesel per day to keep his generators running. More than 86 inches of rain have fallen so far. The flooding also caused rivers to overflow, fields to fill with water, and millions of farm animals to drown.

To make matters worse, Florence was about 50 miles (80 km) larger in diameter due to global warming, putting more people in harm's way, the study showed. Six days later, flooding remains a problem, with some roads still impassable and some rivers still near cresting. But about a dozen still remained unreachable as of Thursday morning, Andy Curliss, the group's leader, said. Even on seemingly safe roadways, vehicles can quickly be overcome.

"Our people took a gut punch", Cooper said after the president's arrival.

"This is ridiculous. This is the worst I've ever seen", Tovornik said.

Speaking in Las Vegas, President Donald Trump said SC is in for a "tough one" as flood waters keep rising.

The supplies will go to residents of the eastern part of the state who were hardest hit by the storm, The News & Observer reported.

"When outlets fail to connect these events to global warming, audiences are left uninformed about some of the most critical decisions we face", David Arkush, who directs Public Citizen's climate program, said in a statement.

A sign commemorating the rebuilding of the town of Nichols, which was flooded two years earlier from Hurricane Matthew, stands in floodwaters in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence in Nichols, S.C., Friday, Sept. 21, 2018.
