Millions of chickens, thousands of pigs died in Florence in North Carolina

  • The National Weather Service radar map shows the rain storm over New Hampshire on Sept. 18 7 a.m

He said operations were minimally damaged, and the company was looking to relocate chickens that survived to other farms. They've been moving many of their belongings to the attic, hoping the water won't rise higher than their house in Horry County, South Carolina.

Florence, in contrast, wasn't the second of two storm punches but stalled near the coast and dumped an estimated 8 trillion gallons of rain.

But the aftermath of Florence's deluge is so vicious, rivers and waterways are rising fast across the Carolinas, burying communities and roads, and preventing evacuees from going back home.

White and Lloyd, who live in the North Carolina town of Kelly, were given little time Thursday night to evacuate when the Cape Fear River came rushing onto their property.

In a 2015 interview, Tim Davis, an entomologist and senior extension agent with Clemson University said: "If the water rises, they kind of all grab a hold of each other, and they can do this for several days, until they reach higher ground".

Almost a week after landing a devastating hurricane "Florence" on the coast of North Carolina and SC the effects of the disaster become even more risky.

When Matthew hit the state, it flooded more than 140 hog and poultry barns, more than a dozen open hog waste pits and thousands of acres of manure-saturated fields, the Environmental Working Group and Waterkeeper Alliance reported.

South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster said the state's resources and personnel have shifted to the Pee Dee region.

"As I've traveled around the state surveying damage and meeting with people who have lost everything, it's clear that the destruction in eastern North Carolina is historic", Cooper said in a Thursday statement obtained by the News & Observer of Raleigh.

He said the town has no water, no sewage, no gasoline and they have been told that they won't have power for eight days. That figure is less than 2,000 in SC.

Georgetown County Administrator Sel Hemingway warned the area may see a flood like it has never seen before. Raised in barns, they can become trapped and drown in floods.

Hurricane Florence has resulted in at least 37 deaths in three states, but President Donald Trump seems to want survivors to look on the bright side.

North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper says the state is still tallying its storm damage, but says it will be in the billions. "Due to this, travel isn't recommended south of US 64", it said. An 81-year-old man who was found dead inside a vehicle in Dillon County after it was swept away by water, was among the victims in SC, the department tweeted on Thursday. "Please ... do not try to return home yet".

The footprint of flooding from this storm covers much of the same area hit by flooding from Hurricane Matthew in 2016, which only worsens the burden on these farmers.

"It's kind of a grassroots effort of people thinking, 'What can I do to help?'" UNC athletic director Bubba Cunningham told the outlet.
