What will life be like after Hurricane Florence — WHAT'S HAPPENING

Beforehand he boasted on Twitter: "Right now, everybody is saying what a great job we are doing with Hurricane Florence - and they are 100% correct".

The tragic incident occurred near the Little Pee Dee River, which continues to rise as water from upriver North Carolina makes its way into South Carolina's waterways. Many roads remained closed, and thousands of people lack power.

Trump promised North and SC would have strong federal support.

Florence is being blamed for at least 34 deaths in three states.

It was the same message at Trump's first stop in North Carolina, where Gov. Roy Cooper and federal and state officials briefed the president at a Marine Corps air station in Havelock, which sits among areas Florence hit hardest.

"At this time, the recovery effort is ongoing, and the transportation vehicle can not be removed due to rising waters and risky conditions".

"At least you got a nice boat out of the deal", he said, smiling, according to the Post.

"God bless you. We will never forget your loss". To all those impacted by this awful storm, our entire American family is with you and ready to help.

Trump visited a neighborhood in Conway where residents were loading moving vans in anticipation of more flooding. Soaked ground could damage peanut crops, and hemp stems were reported blown over, the state said.

In Horry County, S.C., two women being taken for mental health care died on Tuesday night when the sheriff's office van they were being transported in met floodwaters. A massive federal, state and local recovery effort is underway.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has conducted over 2,000 rescues in the region and is sheltering almost 15,000 people.

Many were outside enjoying the lovely weather Wednesday, he said.

Mayor Bill Saffo said two routes were now open into Wilmington, which had been completely cut off by floodwaters, but those roads could close again as water swells the Cape Fear River on the city's west side. Rivers swollen by days of rain still threaten communities barely touched by the storm.

Through tears, she said she has survived hurricanes Floyd in 1999 and Matthew in 2016 but "this has been the absolute worst one".

A wall of concrete barriers and plastic sheets is being built along US Highway 501 to save the main road into Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, from going underwater. The storm has caused widespread damage, and almost 40 deaths across the Carolinas and Virginia.

Police respond to possible active shooter in Middleton, Wisconsin
NBC15 in Madison reports police are responding to an active shooter situation in the 1800 block of Deming Way in Middleton. More than an hour after the shooting, he and his colleagues were huddled in place in their cafeteria, away from windows.

They passed a vehicle buried in floodwaters Tuesday and called out to see if anyone was in it.

Some additional reporting provided by Newsy affiliate CNN. "It's just hard to explain. We're with you all the way".

U.S. President Donald Trump warned SC on Wednesday "water is coming your way" from more floods as the death toll from Hurricane Florence rose to at least 36 after a sheriff's van was swept away killing 2 women. Thom Tillis and Richard Burr, both North Carolina Republicans, and Sens.

The slow-moving storm has since been downgraded to a tropical depression and moved into the USA northeast. Swollen rivers are gushing downstream toward flooded towns and cities, putting more homes at risk.

Florence dropped almost 3 feet (1 meter) of rain on North Carolina as the storm moved slowly across the state, flooding towns, closing roads and killing dozens of people.

Addressing roughly 10,000 people who remain in shelters and "countless more" staying elsewhere, Cooper urged them to stay put for now, particularly those from the hardest-hit coastal counties that include Wilmington, near where Florence blew ashore on Friday. "Please.do not try to return home yet".

He asked if everyone was OK, then said it was "going to be OK".

The hurricane has claimed at least 32 lives, officials said, including 25 in North Carolina.

"We have 12,000 residents who could be in harm's way if the river continues to rise", he said.

Forecasters predict some rivers in the northeastern area of the state might not reach their highest levels until later this week or next week.

Wilmington was the epicenter of Florence's destruction.

Almost 3 feet of rain fell in places, and dozens of cities had more than 10 inches of rain. It will have its wettest year in 140 years of record-keeping.

In Lumberton, where residents scrambled to plug the levee system, parts of Interstate 95 will remain closed until the Lumber River drops below 21 feet.

Matt Wellington, antibiotics program director of U.S. PIRG, a federation of public interest groups, said the release of waste from lagoons could spread antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
