"It is compelling and sobering to see these storms come in back-to-back seasons", said Jim Kossin, an atmospheric research scientist with the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

The biggest SC city in the way of flooding from Hurricane Florence is in gridlock. Blackhawk helicopters were used to pluck many of them to safety. Raised in barns, they can become trapped and drown in floods.

"If you can get out, get out", said Joseph Tanner, the county's fire rescue chief, during an interview with WBTW News 13.

Authorities have said 23 out of the 46 counties in SC could potentially be impacted by flooding.

"When outlets fail to connect these events to global warming, audiences are left uninformed about some of the most critical decisions we face", David Arkush, who directs Public Citizen's climate program, said in a statement.

In Bladen County, North Carolina, around 100 people and 33 animals were rescued "in a unsafe operation in the middle of the night" after a dam burst, Governor Roy Cooper said in a twitter post on Friday. They'll talk about the time a yard of rain fell and Interstate 40 turned into a long, straight river.

North Carolina is the second largest hog-farming state in the US, according to Quartz. About 20,000 pigs were moved to other states, other parts of North Carolina or to the market, the Pork Council's Curliss said.

North Carolina is the country's No. 2 swine-producing state, its leading producer of tobacco and a major poultry producer, making agriculture its principle industry, valued at $87 billion.

In North Carolina, a familiar story was unfolding as many places that flooded in Hurricane Matthew in 2016 were once again inundated.

Secretary of Transportation Jim Trogdon said Thursday that an initial $14 million in highway fix funding has been approved by the U.S. Department of Transportation, and the local administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency said his agency has approved more than $5 million in initial direct disaster aid to individuals.

At Fayetteville, about 100 miles (160 kilometers) inland, near the Army's sprawling Fort Bragg, flooding from Cape Fear River got so bad that authorities closed a vehicle bridge after the water began touching girders supporting the span's top deck.

But according to a statement from Duke Energy, the cooling lake does not store coal ash, and the plant's ash basins "are now not affected by this incident".

From there they went to the town's fire department, and were taken out of town by an Army truck.

His dad, Brad Whiteis, told him about Hurricane Florence and explained to Carter the possibility of flooding in the coming days.
