Florence rainfall totals for North Carolina: 8 trillion gallons

Chicken farm buildings stand in floodwater after Hurricane Florence near Trenton North Carolina

Travel is disrupted by hundreds of roads and bridges flooded or damaged.

Based on data from about seven decades of storms, Kossin found tropical-cyclone speed had decreased globally by 10 percent from 1949 to 2016, according to a paper published in June in the scientific journal Nature.

"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.

Cooper said at a news conference Friday that the National Guard and the U.S. Coast Guard "heroically saved lives" when they rescued the people in the town of Kelly in Bladen County on Thursday night.

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

"It is compelling and sobering to see these storms come in back-to-back seasons", said Jim Kossin, an atmospheric research scientist with the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

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.
