Florence rainfall totals for North Carolina: 8 trillion gallons

Florence rainfall totals for North Carolina: 8 trillion gallons

As of noon on Wednesday, the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality had identified 21 flooded lagoons actively releasing pig urine and feces into the environment and an additional 89 at imminent risk of releasing waste due to structural damage or water overflow.

In South Carolina, the flooding has damaged cotton, peanut and hemp crops.

President Trump said nearly 20,000 military personnel and federal workers were deployed to help with the aftermath of the storm, The Associated Press reported.

The Cape Fear River at Fayetteville crested at 61.5 feet on Wednesday, 4 feet higher than during the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew, while Interstate 40 flooding cut off Wilmington. Some areas could stay underwater for weeks, forecasters warned. "Please heed the warnings", Sheriff Lane Cribb said.

Pierre-Louis reports that locals have long protested the region's large-scale hog farming, which they say has a detrimental effect on their health and well-being. We work hard to protect and to serve our citizens. "We need a serious national discussion about the urgent, existential threat from climate change and how we are going to fix it-and it's very hard to have that conversation when media won't talk about the topic".

Officials said 33 animals also were rescued.

Thousands of people evacuated their homes, at least 37 people died, and millions lost power. He also said that Democrats would start to criticize the government response to the storm, and "this will be a total lie, but that's what they do, and everybody knows it!"

Authorities have said that 23 out of the 46 counties in SC could potentially be impacted by flooding.

But news audiences were rarely informed about the contribution of human-caused climate disruption to the devastating storm, according to a study of hurricane coverage by Public Citizen.

President Donald Trump and North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper listen while attending a briefing, after Trump arrived at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point to visit areas impacted by Hurricane Florence, Sept. 19, 2018, in Havelock, N.C.

Of those, approximately 7,800 are in shelters in North Carolina. Others can't get to their neighborhoods because the extensive road closures or simply because they don't have a ride home.

One megawatt can power about 1,000 U.S. homes.

Roads have been so impassable in Kinston, North Carolina, the National Guard has used helicopters to distribute water.

"We are cautioning everyone not to be overconfident", City Administrator Adam Emrick said.

"The money will be a lot, but it's going to come as fast as you need it", he said at the briefing. "We are anxious about Friday".

These farmers will suffer the greatest impact because of timing.

The majority of North Carolina's 2,100 hog farms are located in the southern counties of Sampson and Duplin, which were heavily affected by Florence's torrential downpour and, according to Vox's Irfan, are amongst the poorest in the state.

About 110,000 homes and businesses were still without electricity in North Carolina, about 20 percent in the county where Wilmington is located.

"It's all gone", Cavenaugh told WRAL.

"I'm focusing on this disaster at hand", he said.

"This was an unprecedented storm with flooding expected to exceed that from any other storms in recent memory", Troxler said in a statement. Farmers are also concerned about cotton, sweet potatoes, peanuts and corn, but swamped roads and fields have made it hard to assess the damage.
