(Worthy News) - North and South Carolina continue to recover after Florence dumped over 20 inches of rain in some areas, which claimed the lives of at least 31 people.
Nonprofit groups are preparing to serve tens of thousands of meals daily in the most-damaged areas, while state and federal emergency officials are locating temporary housing, including hotel rooms, for storm victims in the weeks or months that they're displaced.
"We are expecting several more days of rain, and our focus now is getting people away from immediate danger," North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said as the relenting storm puttered slowly west near the South Carolina border. "And then we will shift into putting our communities back together." [ Source: Fox News (Read More...) ]
