President Trump to visit Carolinas in hurricane’s aftermath

Thousands of fire ants are forming

In a later post on Twitter, Trump wrote: "Right now, everybody is saying what a great job we are doing with Hurricane Florence - and they are 100% correct".

In Wilmington, population 120,000, workers began handing out supplies using a system that resembled a fast-food drive-thru: Drivers pulled up to pallets lining a street, placed an order and left without having to get out.

In North Carolina, transportation officials Tuesday continued advising motorists who ordinarily might take southbound I-95 from Virginia to SC that flooding has made long sections of I-95 in North Carolina impassable.

Residents of the Carolinas struggled to return to normalcy on Tuesday after taking a beating from Hurricane Florence, but their efforts were hindered by standing water and additional flooding expected from already swollen rivers.

"At this time, things are moving as well as can be in the city", Saffo said.

The National Weather Service said there was an "elevated risk for landslides" in North Carolina. He warned that the Democrats will soon start criticizing the government response, and "this will be a total lie, but that's what they do, and everybody knows it!"

"We've been preparing for and living through Hurricane Florence for more than a week now, but this remains a significant disaster that affects much of our state", Cooper said.

A cat clings to the side of a trailer in the flood waters before it was saved as the Northeast Cape Fear River overflowed its banks in the aftermath Hurricane Florence in Burgaw, N.C., September 17, 2018. On Tuesday, logs and other debris became trapped under a rail bridge as rushing brown water pushed against the span.

White House is Planning an Attack on Kavanaugh Accuser, Christine Blasey Ford
If there is credible evidence that Kavanaugh committed a crime, the American people deserve to know and Ford deserves justice. The Republican leader criticized Democrats for sitting on the information during weeks of debate on Kavanaugh's nomination.

First responders have rescued and evacuated more than 2,600 people as of Monday.

Brock Long, head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, appeared with Cooper and said his agency would help restore power and open roads.

In addition, the company reported there are about 6.33 million chicken at about 30 farms in the Lumberton area isolated by floodwaters and now unreachable.

The governor said 16 rivers statewide were at major flood stage and more than 1,100 roads were closed.

In Lumberton, where the Lumber River inundated homes, Fire Chief John Paul Ivey couldn't even count how many calls authorities had received about people needing to be rescued.

More than 18 million litres of partially treated sewage spilled into the Cape Fear River after power went out at a treatment plant, officials said, and the earthen dam of a pond holding hog waste was breached, spilling its contents.

More than 324,000 customers, mostly in the Carolinas, were without power on Tuesday, according to power companies, down from a peak of almost 1 million outages.
