President Donald Trump is scheduled to get an update on storm-damaged areas of North Carolina on Wednesday at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point.

Brandon Echavarrieta struggled to stay composed as he described life post-Florence: no power for days, rotted meat in the freezer, no water or food and just one bath in a week.

More than 1,100 roads were still closed across North Carolina, Cooper said, including several portions of Interstates 40 and 95.

The death toll from Florence, which came ashore in North Carolina on Friday, rose to 31 on Monday.

The death toll rose to at least 16 in North and SC, where roads were treacherous and even the most stately trees were falling.

"The ground is saturated, and even a small amount of rain can cause flash flooding", Cooper said. A motorboat was the only way for nurse Iris Locklear to get to work.

To make room on the roster, the Vikings also waived wide receiver Stacy Coley. "He really liked him". Hopefully this'll be the end of the Vikings kicking woes, at least for field goals and extra points.

One road was opened into Wilmington briefly, and helicopters and military trucks were bringing relief supplies into the stranded city, where hundreds of people have been rescued from the roofs of flooded homes.

Water levels of the Cape Fear, Lumber, Neuse, Little, Black and Haw rivers and Contentnea Creek are expected to continue rising in coming hours, according to the Flood Inundation Mapping and Alert Network's Flood Impact Summary Report.

The flooding got so bad that authorities closed a vehicle bridge in Fayetteville after the river began touching girders supporting the bridge's top deck.

First responders have rescued and evacuated more than 2,600 people as of Monday.

"We don't know. We'd love to have them", McMaster said.

In addition, the company reported there are about 6.33 million chicken at about 30 farms in the Lumberton area isolated by floodwaters and now unreachable. More than 300,000 across the state remained without power as of Tuesday morning, according to Duke Progress Energy. FIMAN estimated the damage from flooding in the Lumber River in Lumberton is nearly $35 million.

"There's too much going on", he said. Power outages in the Southeast also were down, from a high of more than 910,000 to about 245,000, almost all in North Carolina.
