Video Shows Animals Stranded by Hurricane Florence Got Rescued in Style

Volunteers from all over North Carolina help rescue residents and their pets from their flooded homes during Hurricane Florence

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.

Jordan, 55, who grew up Wilmington, North Carolina, told The Associated Press Tuesday that he believed he "had to act in a sense that this is my home".

Trump, who has been criticized for his response to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico previous year, plans to arrive at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point in Havelock, North Carolina, at about 10:30 a.m. EDT (1430 GMT) and return to Washington at 6:15 p.m. (2215 GMT), according to the White House.

The death toll rose to at least 37 in three states Tuesday, with 27 fatalities in North Carolina, as Florence's remnants went in two directions: Water flowed downstream toward the Carolina coast, and storms raced through the Northeast, where flash floods hit New Hampshire and NY state.

Four days after Florence blew ashore and began unloading more than 60cm of rain that paralysed much of North Carolina, Wilmington was still virtually cut off from the rest of the state, with just one road tentatively open as a supply route. On Tuesday, the storm's remnants were continuing to soak the mid-Atlantic region and southern New England with heavy rain.

Property damage from the storm is expected to come to $17 billion to $22 billion, the risk management firm Moody's Analytics said.

President Donald Trump will visit the storm-ravaged Carolinas on Wednesday.

Much of Columbus County, where Fair Bluff is located, was under water, according to Steve Abbott of the North Carolina Department of Transportation, with most roads closed and "driving not advised". Fire and rescue crews were waiting to go into many areas to assist with structural damage resulting from Florence, which has dumped up to 36 inches (91 cm) of rain in parts of North Carolina since Thursday. "What's open now may become impassable".

As of Monday afternoon, there have been 62 people, two dogs and two cats rescued throughout the county.

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. City officials warned still-rising water threatened some neighborhoods and businesses that seemed safe, but said the worst was almost over and life was beginning to return to normal downtown.

Gasoline shortages were a problem. In Wilmington, dozens of cars lined up for fuel at a Kangaroo Express service station.

Asked about her hope right now, she said, "That Wilmington gets back to normal".
