Trump was apparently talking to an older man whose home had been damaged after a large yacht had washed ashore and was shipwrecked against the wooden deck of his porch.

"This is going to be a lot worse", Fraboni told CNN affiliate WBTW.

Floodwaters from Hurricane Florence are raising fears as rivers continue to spread beyond their banks. Residential streets have turned into rivers and freeways have morphed into waterways.

On Tuesday, the North Carolina Department of Agriculture issued the mortality totals of livestock as the Department of Environmental Quality says that a dam in Duplin County was breached and numerous state's 16 rivers were at major flood stages.

Officials said 33 animals also were rescued.

More than 54,000 homes and businesses in the Carolinas were still without power on Friday, a week after Hurricane Florence hit the North Carolina coast on September 14, according to local power companies. As for the source of the waste, the state houses over 9 million pigs, many of which live in the storm-affected Sampson and Duplin counties, according to the BBC.

When storms such as Harvey, which struck Texas last year, and Florence come to a virtual stall, a deluge of rain can fall in the matter of days, equal to what an area typically sees in a year, they said.

McMaster estimated the damage from flooding in his state at $1.2 billion.

More than three dozen flood gauges in North and SC showed flooding. For many residents in those areas it's not the first time they have been hit by a disaster.

And in SC, emergency managers ordered about 500 people to flee homes along the Lynches River.

"In anticipation of a substantial future federal appropriation, we intend to make an immediate down payment on Hurricane Florence relief funds". Raised in barns, they can become trapped and drown in floods.

The potatoes can be picked by hand, but "we use a plow that flips them out of the ground", he said.

The death toll in the aftermath of Florence reached 37 as of Wednesday, according to the Associated Press. Compounding the problem, storm runoff from North Carolina - which was battered by Florence - is now flowing through the Palmetto State via the Yadkin-Pee Dee drainage basin, which terminates in Winyah Bay near Georgetown, S.C. North Carolina is the top producing state of the tubers, and Smith grows 150 acres of them, only three of which he's been able to harvest so far.

Authorities are also investigating the deaths of two mental health patients in Horry County. "We're at the end of the line of all waters to come down", he said. The fact that about 30 farms has been isolated from civilization for the local flood blocked most roads. "I love SC I love this state and I love Henry McMaster and the job he's done". "Don't drive across it and if there is a barricade up, do not go around that barricade". "We never learn from any of these storms".

Environmental concerns were also continuing to mount.

About 25 miles (40 kilometers) nearer to the SC coast, Kevin Tovornik tore out carpet and removed furniture as a preventative measure because he expected flooding at the house he has owned for 20 years in Conway, where the Waccamaw River was still rising.

The dam will provide support to the dike around a pond "where most of the ash still onsite remains", Santee Cooper said in a statement Thursday.
