President Trump to visit Carolinas in hurricane’s aftermath

Floodwaters inundate a church after Hurricane Florence struck the Carolinas Monday Sept. 17 2018 in Conway S.C

The perils stretched across North Carolina's more than 800-kilometres width.

The victims include a 1-year-old boy who was swept away after his mother drove into floodwaters and lost her grip on him while trying to get back to dry land in North Carolina.

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

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. Sixteen rivers in the state have reached major flood stages, with three more expected to peak in the next two days, he said.

"It's been pretty bad", said Echavarrieta, 34, his voice breaking.

Items have been brought into the city by big military trucks and helicopters, which also have been used to pluck hundreds of desperate people from atop homes and other structures.

Water levels of the Cape Fear, Lumber, Neuse, Little, Black and Haw rivers and Contentnea Creek are expected to continue rising in coming hours, according to the Flood Inundation Mapping and Alert Network's Flood Impact Summary Report.

While rain was finally subsiding on Tuesday, the city of Wilmington remained largely cut off with thousands of people stranded. Fayetteville Mayor Mitch Colvin said it was unclear if the bridge was threatened.

"We don't know. We'd love to have them", McMaster said.

The river swallowed trees, lamp posts and a parking lot near its banks. Businesses were re-opening and owners removed sandbags and plywood from storefronts.

Roy Cooper is scheduled to hold a news conference at 2 p.m.in nearby Newport and then survey storm damage and meet with first responders in Carteret County.

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.

Over 1,200 roads are closed due to flooding, including 356 primary roads.

"There's too much going on..."

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.
