President Trump surveys storm damage in NC

Gray water containing coal ash flows from a ruptured landfill at the L.V. Sutton Power Station in Wilmington North Carolina

At least 43 people have died since the hurricane slammed into the coast more than a week ago.

More than three dozen flood gauges in North and SC showed flooding.

Sanderson Farms, one of the largest poultry producers in North Carolina, lost 1.7 million chickens on its farms, and 60 of its 880 production chicken broiler houses have flooded, the company said in a news release.

Unsafe flooding and evacuations may begin early next week, officials said.

"I think it's incredible what we're seeing", the president added.

The latest victims in SC were identified as Wendy Wenton, 45, and Nicolette Green, 43, by the Marion County Coroner, US media report. Residential streets have turned into rivers and freeways have morphed into waterways.

Benetta White and David Lloyd slogged through waist-deep water filling their yard to escape Hurricane Florence's latest life-threatening punch to a town in the Carolinas. Some are waiting for the water levels to recede, while others are unable to return home either because the roads remain closed or because they have no way to get there. Parts of the main north-south route on the East coast, Interstate 95, and the main road to Wilmington, Interstate 40, remain flooded. Officials are warning that the flooding may worsen still, as rivers throughout the region are bursting their banks.

As the storm roared ashore, it unleashed a huge surge of ocean water that swamped some coastal areas such as New Bern, North Carolina.

About 3500 vehicles came through for supplies on the first day they were available, county officials said in a Facebook post.

The Tobacco Growers Association of North Carolina estimates 100 million to 125 million pounds of tobacco leaf could be damaged by flooding, winds and power outages. "To all those impacted by this awful storm, our entire American family is with you and ready to help".

Flooding from the Cape Fear River caused breaches in a dam at a cooling lake at Duke Energy's LV Sutton Plant in Wilmington, North Carolina, prompting the company to shut down the natural gas plant Friday, Duke Energy said in a statement. A landfill containing disposed ash from the site has not been affected by the cooling lake, it said.

Lying on Atlantic Ocean between Myrtle Beach and Charleston, the county of about 60,000 people is one of several areas across the Carolinas waiting anxiously for rivers to crest, a week after Florence dumped some three feet of rain in the region. At least one of those deaths was in Lenoir County, and a mother and infant were killed in the Wilmington area.
