US President Donald Trump To Visit North Carolina As Waterways Rise

FRANCE-US-BASKETBALL-JORDAN

Cooper told the president, "We're going to need your help" in the recovery efforts, to which Trump responded, "we will be there 100-percent".

On Wednesday, the president is scheduled to depart the White House en route to Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point in Havelock, North Carolina.

He says, "There will be nothing left undone". The region is now dealing with massing flooding in the wake of Florence's path.

The latest victims in SC were identified as Wendy Wenton, 45, and Nicolette Green, 43, by the Marion County Coroner, US media report.

Hurricane Florence's torrential rains have flooded much of the area and washed over sections of numerous roads, including the interstate. It's now at more than 60 feet and expected to crest sometime on Wednesday. That has disrupted efforts to restore power, clear roads and allow evacuated residents to go home.

Rain still in the forecast from Florence — WHAT'S HAPPENING
Boats are stacked up on each other in a marina as a result from Florence in New Bern , North Carolina. "I already know", he said. Florence had strengthened to a Category 4 storm earlier in the week, but was downgraded to a Category 1 on Thursday night.

"A map in a catastrophe is only so good as its ability to capture real-time information either from sensors or people", Steve Goldsmith, a professor who directs Harvard University's Data-Smart City Solutions project, told The Associated Press.

In South Carolina, two women died on Tuesday evening after a van taking the mental health patients from one facility to another was overtaken by rising floodwaters near the Little Pee Dee River, authorities said.

The Transportation Department advised northbound motorists to take a wide detour around the area by using I-85 from Georgia through South Carolina's Upstate and on to Charlotte.

Hurricane Florence has claimed 26 lives in North Carolina.

Sixteen North Carolina rivers were at major flood stage Tuesday, with an additional three forecasted to peak by Thursday.

A flag marks where the Cape Fear River rose to during Hurricane Matthew in 2016, outside of Deep Creek Outfitters in Fayetteville, N.C. Tuesday, Sept.18, 2018.

The town has largely been cut off by flooding from the still-rising Lumber River, which was expected to crest on Wednesday.

Trump's trip to the state follows criticism for his handling of Hurricane Maria, which devastated Puerto Rico previous year, and more recently for disputing the official death toll of 3,000 in the US territory. Critics said the Trump administration was slow to recognise the extent of the damage and slow to help.

The Associated Press reported that the six-time National Basketball Association champion and Charlotte Hornets owner donated $1 million each to the American Red Cross and the Foundation For The Carolinas' Hurricane Florence Response Fund.
