"The damage in the northeastern part of our state will be catastrophic, surpassing anything recorded in modern history", he added.

The total death toll from Florence is now at 41 across the Carolinas and Virginia, officials said.

McMaster on Thursday estimated damage from the flood in his state at $1.2 billion USA, characterizing it in a letter to state congress members as the worst disaster in the state's modern history. County spokeswoman Elizabeth Stalls says there have been at least 150 rescues, but there have been many more "to the point where we've lost count".

Thirty-one deaths have been attributed to the storm in North Carolina, eight in SC and one in Virginia. Near Chinquapin, a community nearly entirely underwater, a monitoring gauge used by the U.S. Geological Survey stopped working Sunday after water levels hit its operational limit of 24.2 feet (7.3 meters) - 8 feet (2 meters) above major flood stage.

A ninth person has died in SC because of Hurricane Florence. Corner Donnie Grimsley said Friday morning that he's still working to contact the victim's family before he releases the name.

"And you haven't really been hit yet, by comparison to what's coming", Trump told officials at the Horry County Emergency Operations Center in Conway. Though the hurricane packed 90 miles per hour (145 kph) winds as it came ashore, the amount of water Florence pushed ashore and dropped inland has swamped vast areas still vulnerable to rising rivers.


ABC never referred to climate change in its coverage of Florence, Public Citizen found; its over-the-air colleagues did little better, with CBS and NBC airing one segment apiece that mentioned Florence and climate change together (out of 63 and 73 hurricane segments, respectively).

Former linebacker Kevin Reddick, who played for the team from 2009 through 2012, contacted the Heels to ask if they could help donate and collect items for his hometown of New Bern, which was ravaged by the storm. DOT approved the funds shortly after Gov. Roy Cooper and North Carolina Transportation Secretary James Trogdon requested them. The storm also closed 1,200 North Carolina roads, including 357 primary roads.

"The National Guard is on standby if that's not big enough", Emrick said of the dam.

"We can't wait to go back home and live a normal life again, hopefully on Wednesday".

Duke Energy Corp, the biggest utility in the Carolinas with over 4 million customers, said it had restored power to more than 1.7 million of its almost 1.8 million customers affected by the storm.

The department's spokeswoman Megan Thorpe told CNN that the facility's cooling pond was "overtopping", and the state sent a crew to get additional information. The inundated basin contains at the plant 400,000 cubic yards of ash.
