University of North Carolina football players are lending a helping hand to those affected by Hurricane Florence - donating their allotted meal money to buy relief supplies, according to a report.

While Florence was downgraded to a Category 1 storm by the time it struck the area on September 15, it still managed to dump a record 23 inches of rain in SC and 35 inches in North Carolina, over the course of just four days.

The almost 10 million pigs housed in hog farms across North Carolina produce roughly 10 billion gallons of manure per year, and as Sarah Sax notes for Vice News, much of this waste eventually lands in the state's more than 3,300 "hog lagoons".

"Although the winds are gone and the rain is not falling, the water is still there and the worst is still to come in the Pee Dee", South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster said Friday, referring to the eastern part of the state.

The President then met with local and state officials, SC senators Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott, and Congressman Tom Rice at the Horry County Emergency Operations Center, assuring them that Washington is behind the county and will provide federal help.

Todo empezó en la estación de Londres a la que N'Golo Kanté llegó para abordar el tren hacia París y aprovechar el día libre. Tras perder el viaje, acudió a una mezquita donde conoció a un grupo de amigos que le pidieron una foto.

Wilmington, the coastal city 50 miles north of the SC border that was completely shuttered by the storm, remains unreachable by road. Florence inundated parts of the Carolinas, leaving about 3 feet of rain in some places.

"I love SC I love this state and I love Henry McMaster and the job he's done".

Access improved at least temporarily to Wilmington, a North Carolina port city of 120,000 that has been isolated for days by high water. Roofs were peeled off laboratory buildings and dormitories at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, and the University of North Carolina in Wilmington. Though it is still unclear how much of the waste is in the storm water, even small exposures to feces, which contain bacteria such as E. coli and Salmonella, can pose significant health issues to the residents.

The storm continues to severely hamper travel.

Pompeo said the incident underscores "the need to end Iran's transit of risky weapons systems through Syria". But the radar signatures of the relatively slow Ilyushin and four nimble F-16 jets are radically different.

McMaster said Friday he hopes United Health Care's generosity inspires other companies across the state to donate to the One SC Fund to help the recovery from Hurricane Florence's floods.

Roads have been so impassable in Kinston, North Carolina, the National Guard has used helicopters to distribute water. Some of them have been washed out entirely.

Two years ago, flooding ruined the baseboards and carpet of the Presbyterian Church of the Covenant in Spring Lake. "We put a lot of heart and soul into putting it back up". Over 60,000 customers were without power in North Carolina early on Friday, according to Poweroutage.us.

Police say they died on Tuesday when a sheriff's van transporting them was caught in floodwaters.

Trump, too, warned that more water was on the way, but assured those gathered that both he and Washington are "with you".
