10 days after Florence, fresh chaos in S. Carolina

I-40, US 74 back open, US 421 needs work

"We thought this might be coming". The group said she is also facing one count of solicitation of a Schedule IV controlled substance for asking for a donation of Tramadol, a prescription pain medication used for animals.

Funeral services are being held for the two women who drowned while being driven to a mental health facility in SC through a flooded area.

Rivers swelling with the floodwaters of former Hurricane Florence are threatening to swamp communities near the SC coast, leaving thousands ready to evacuate.

"Hurricane Florence has deeply wounded our state", Gov. Roy Cooper said Saturday, "wounds that will not fade soon as the flood waters finally recede".

The National Hurricane Center said a broad area of low pressure about 300 miles south of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, is producing showers and thunderstorms on its north side.

She said the estimated 6,000 to 8,000 people who live in the area are being "strongly urged" to leave on their own, although no mandatory evacuation has been ordered.

Wayne County officials arrested Tammie Hedges, who runs the Crazy's Claws N' Paws rescue in Goldsboro, and forced her to turn over 27 dogs and cats last Monday after Wayne County animal services determined the group was operating an unregistered animal shelter, the Goldsboro News-Argus reported.

But floodwaters already receding on one stretch of Interstate 40 left thousands of rotting fish on the pavement for firefighters to clean up. Upstream in Horry County, the floodwaters have invaded close to 1,000 homes near Conway as the Waccamaw River was slowly making its way to a crest a full 4 feet (1.2 meters) over its record level set just two years ago after Hurricane Matthew.

"Florence is gone, but the storm's devastation is still with us", Cooper said at a news conference.

The storm dumped 750 to 1,000 mm of rain on the Wilmington area alone after making landfall nearby on September 14.

Davidson said the animals had nowhere else to go, and veterinary offices had closed ahead of the storm.

Crews conducted about 350 rescues over the weekend, and travel remains treacherous in the southeastern area of the state, the governor added. Lawmakers already are facing a deadline this week to fund the government before the start of the new budget year October 1, and members of Congress are expected to try to act on the disaster relief along with separate legislation to fund the government.

Hurricane Florence didn't merely destroy homes, create mold and make people homeless, it also brought "countless" fish into towns along with the flood waters. The worst disaster, Hurricane Katrina in 2005, cost $192.2 billion in today's dollars.

Insured losses from Hurricane Florence will range from $2.8 billion to $5 billion, RMS, a risk modeling and analytics firm, said on Monday.

Trogdon says 400 roads statewide are still closed and almost 1,900 road sites will require work in the coming weeks and months.

North Carolina Public Schools spokesman Drew Elliot said the unofficial estimate was that 1.2 million of more than 1.5 million public school students in the state missed classes because of the storm.
