Cooper Says North Carolina Death Toll From Florence Reaches 26

At the White House, President Donald Trump said nearly 20,000 military personnel and federal workers were deployed to help with the aftermath.

Almost 2 feet (60 centimeters) of rain fell over this coastal county.

The worst devastation caused by Hurricane Florence is likely to come in its aftermath, from flooding, contamination, and now. fire ants.

"I think we're going to have to have a broader conversation, the American Meteorological Society, the National Weather Association, emergency managers and stakeholders to try to find a way to convey these types of threats going forward", said University of Georgia Meteorology Professor, Marshall Shepherd.

When Florence's winds weakened and it dropped in storm category, he said, "We made it very clear that in no way shape or form that this is going to reduce the impacts in terms of flooding and surge".

While dealing with Florence in the Carolinas, the Trump administration's disaster relief chief found himself talking on Sunday news shows about the death toll in Puerto Rico from last year's Hurricane Maria, which President Donald Trump loudly disputed on Twitter.

"Significant river flooding is expected to continue in the Carolinas over the next week and flood warnings remain in effect across the region", the Department of Energy said Tuesday. Still, it displaced thousands of people and caused extensive property damage.

Waterways were expected to keep rising yesterday in places like Fayetteville, North Carolina, a city of 200,000 in the southern part of the state, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

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

Florence dropped more than 18 inches (45 centimeters) of rain over parts of this county on the northeast bank of the Cape Fear River.

Authorities say two female inmates being transported to a mental health facility in SC drowned in rising flood waters after the van they were in was swept away. County spokeswoman Elizabeth Stalls says there have been at least 150 rescues, but there have been many more "to the point where we've lost count". So far, several people have died after being swept up in the stormwaters, and falling trees have killed two small children. His power went off Thursday before Florence hit the coast, but he couldn't recall exactly when.

Wilmington, North Carolina, a city with a population of 110,000 people and an global airport, has been cut off from the rest of the world by flood waters.

Food, water, and gasoline are still in short supply for residents who remained.

Rescuers have saved about 700 people in New Hanover county, where Wilmington is located, and 2,600 people across the state.
