Florence flooding continues in North Carolina with another river expected to crest

With Wilmington still mostly an island surrounded by Hurricane Florence's floodwaters and people waiting for hours for handouts of necessities like food, North Carolina's governor is pleading with thousands of evacuees to be patient and not return home just yet.

Trump promised, "Whatever we have to do at the federal level, we will be there". The East Coast of the Tar Heel took the heaviest hit from Florence, and thousands of homes and roads are under water.

In South Carolina, just south of the North Carolina border, I-95 travels through especially low-lying swamp land, and over the Great Pee Dee and Little Pee Dee rivers.

"It's truly devastating for me to see the damage that Hurricane Florence is doing to my beloved home state of North Carolina and to the surrounding areas", Jordan, who is the owner of the Charlotte Bobcats of the National Basketball Association, said last week in a statement posted on the team's website announcing its charity work.

"People don't realize how a very hard phase is beginning today, with the handsome sunshine", Trump said. Mike Sprayberry, director the state Division of Emergency Management, says FEMA officials have been in the state for days looking at housing options for the displaced.

Despite everything they had been through, the volunteers and locals were energized, and cheered when he finished handing out food, then crowded around the president to get photos. At the time, it seemed to reflect Trump's brand of playfulness.

Britain identified the Russian suspects last week and released security-camera photos of them in Salisbury on March 3 and 4. The two men said they may have passed by Skripal's house, but they did not know him. "We'll see soon enough", he said.

The White House said President Donald Trump will visit North Carolina on Wednesday morning to see the damage.

Adds Trump: "I think it will be an incredible day". "This will be a total lie, but that's what they do, and everybody knows it!" Mr. President, we have never seen one like this.

U.S. President Donald Trump participates in a briefing with Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Hurricane Florence recovery efforts at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point in Havelock, North Carolina, U.S., September 19, 2018. Around a quarter of a million people remain without power, and sections of several major roadways remain impassable.

The president said he trusts the Senate to do its job.
