Death toll rises to 37 from storm Florence in US East Coast

Trump 35604- The Latest Trump promises aid for Florence recovery

Roads remained unsafe, and some were still being closed as swollen rivers emptied toward the ocean.

President Donald Trump spoke with state and federal officials at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point on the Neuse River in North Carolina.

That could have a ripple effect on people's wallets for at least the short term.

"We've got a long road ahead.to make sure we build back to where we need to be", Cooper continued.

"If that road is in an area where it is a flood risk, and waters were rising, why were they driving on that road anyway?" said Bamberg, a state lawmaker. "America grieves with you and our hearts break for you", Trump said.

"To all those impacted by this bad storm, our entire American family is with you and ready to help and you will recover", he said.

After landing in North Carolina and surveying damage, the president flew to SC. Gov. Henry McMaster met the President as he arrived. North Carolina estimated on Tuesday 3.4 million poultry birds and 5,500 hogs died in the storm, exceeding the number killed in the state's last major hurricane two years ago.

The reason is that climate change is warming the Arctic much more than it is heating up the Tropics, easing the pressure difference between the two, he said in an interview on Wednesday. He said it's important to discuss the impact of climate change during extreme weather events because that's when the public is focused on it.

A natural disaster "should be a time when we should all be Americans", and put such differences aside, he said.

Floodwaters rose and then receded in Conway, South Carolina, but a second cresting is expected.

"Recognize this place?" he tweeted. And while sunny skies have returned, the water problems are just beginning. After Hurricane Matthew in 2016, one waste lagoon failed, and 14 others were inundated, according to the N.C. Pork Council.

"We are cautioning everyone not to be overconfident", City Administrator Adam Emrick said. She told NPR she hopes Trump will make sure that federal agencies respond quickly to help residents in crisis as the waters recede. "We are anxious about Friday".

Several truck drivers who were bringing in water and other supplies told Mann they see Trump's visit as a sign that he is paying attention and that the recovery effort is on track, with some describing him as a "hands-on president".

Jordan's family moved to Wilmington when he was a child, and he went to Laney High School before attending the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.

"We lost a couple of columns in the front when it took out the front porch", said New Bern resident George Bowser.

When storms such as Harvey, which struck Texas last year, and Florence come to a virtual stall, a deluge of rain can fall in the matter of days, equal to what an area typically sees in a year, they said.

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

In Lumberton, where the Lumber River still covered parts of town, water was deep enough that vehicles passing by on streets sent wakes into partially submerged homes, businesses and a church. "You're going to have to start over, that's all we can do". Of those, 27 died in North Carolina, including in Duplin County, where the Sandersons live. North and SC both backed Trump in the 2016 election, and the president largely saw people who were happy to greet him.

Florence was slowly moving northeast, where tornadoes associated with the storm hit Virginia.

While the storm is bearing down, climate change is "not the most important thing people should be thinking about", Williams said.

Cooper warned residents that the rain may have subsided, but the flooding danger is far from over.

North Carolina's governor is pleading with thousands of Hurricane Florence evacuees to be patient and not return home just yet. "Please.do not try to return home yet".
