Florence Unleashing a Flood of Pig Poop on North Carolina

Florence Unleashing a Flood of Pig Poop on North Carolina

Weather and marine scientists were awestruck last week as they watched two deadly, record-breaking storms evolve on opposite sides of the globe: Hurricane Florence in North America, and Typhoon Mangkhut in Asia.

A high water team eventually rescued the two deputies who were escorting them.

The death toll from Storm Florence has risen to 37 after officials confirmed the deaths of two SC mental health patients, officials say. The study concludes that communities near hog lagoons suffer higher infant mortality and death from many causes, although the study says that a direct link hasn't yet been established.

"President Donald Trump-one in a million".

Almost 3 feet of rain fell in places, and dozens of cities had more than 10 inches of rain.

After talking to more residents in New Bern, Trump traveled nearly 15o miles southwest to Conway, South Carolina, a city of nearly 24,000 that has seen record flood levels that surpassed levels from Hurricane Matthew in 2016.

On September 10, 2018, the National Hurricane Center warned the residents of Virginia and North and SC that the fast approaching tropical storm Florence was gaining strength and could make landfall as a Category 5 hurricane. 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.

"And we have not only the record amounts that have dropped on SC, particularly in this third of the state, but we have the water coming down from North Carolina, because we have three watersheds, three river sheds: the Waccamaw, the Pee Dee, and the Lynches River".

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.

Global warming has greatly increased the chances of another storm of Harvey's magnitude hitting Texas again, according to a published study by Massachusetts Institute of Technology Professor Kerry Emanuel.

North Carolina is one of the leading hog-producing states in the country. Duke Energy issued a high-level emergency alert after floodwaters from the Cape Fear River overtopped an earthen dike and inundated a large lake at a closed power plant near Wilmington, North Carolina.
