Trump arrived in SC by helicopter a short time after he toured storm-damaged areas of neighboring North Carolina.

Cooper said North Carolina had confirmed a 26th death from the storm, pushing the toll to 33 lives lost so far in the Carolinas and Virginia, including at least three children between the ages of 3 months and 1 year.

"I think people definitely did listen to warnings", Gillie said. "I'm trying to get it all out of my head".

He earlier visited a devastated community along North Carolina's Neuse River, speaking to residents in the flood ravaged town of New Bern.

Fayetteville Police Chief Gina Hawkins told the paper that despite the mandatory evacuation, officers can not force people to leave their homes.

There wasn't any presidential fanfare 120 miles away in Fayetteville. "This will be a total lie, but that's what they do and everybody knows it!"

WHAT HE SAID: "Rarely have we had an experience like it and it's certainly not good".

At 900 mm, Florence wouldn't even make the top ten wettest hurricanes to hit the U.S.

The president is visiting the region Wednesday after the powerful storm left widespread destruction and flooding.

"The two deputies attempted to extricate the persons being transported", the news release said.

"We're going to be there 100%", Trump told officials at a briefing shortly after arriving at the Marine Corps air station Cherry Point in Havelock, North Carolina.

Almost 3 feet (0.9 meters) of rain fell in places, and dozens of cities had more than 10 inches (25 centimeters) of rain.

Waterkeeper Alliance has conducted overflights at some of the industrial sites and agricultural operations impacted by Florence and is investigating the possible hazards left in the storm's wake.

'People in flood prone areas or near waterways need to remain alert as rivers crest and stay above their banks in coming days, ' North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper said in a written statement. According to NOAA, an average of three hurricanes cross the USA coast every five years.

Beneath Coast Guard members' military "hardness" and seemingly invincible spirits are just Carolinians, witnessing their home state's growing devastation from floodwaters.

The deaths, which have occurred in three states, include those of two women who were being taken to a mental health facility when the van they were riding in was engulfed by floodwaters from the Little Pee Dee River in SC, authorities said.

In South Carolina, two of the victims were mental health patients who died during an effort to transport them to another facility on Tuesday.

"This is a tough hurricane", the president said in the video.

Trump visited a neighborhood in Conway where residents were loading moving vans in anticipation of more flooding.

More than 121,000 customers were without power across North Carolina, and more than 2.1 million customers across the southeast United States were affected by the storm, according to utilities.

While the Tar Heel state is no stranger to hurricanes, researchers say this storm brought new concerns with it. Farmers are also concerned about cotton, sweet potatoes, peanuts and corn, but swamped roads and fields have made it hard to assess the damage.
