President Trump serves meals to residents effected by Hurricane Florence

WHAT'S HAPPENING: What will life be like after Hurricane Florence? Florence shows how storm coverage is politicized

U.S. President Donald Trump warned SC that "water is coming your way" as he toured the area on Wednesday.

Florence is a "storm like no other" and its deadly flooding means "a long road ahead" for North Carolina, Gov. Roy Cooper said at a joint news conference with President Donald Trump Wednesday.

Adds Trump: "I think it will be an incredible day".

At least one North Carolina dam has breached so far under the strain of Hurricane Florence's flooding, but officials say no homes were affected.

In South Carolina, reports have emerged suggesting that two deaths were mental health patients who drowned after a van they were travelling in crashed.

More than 160,000 people in North Carolina were without power as of 6 p.m. ET on Wednesday, and 850 roads in the state remained closed.

"People don't realize how a very hard phase is beginning today, with the lovely sunshine", he added.

Even during a major catastrophe, The Donald has a way of making things about himself-for example, indirectly inquiring about his North Carolina golf course while the state continues to suffer the devastating effects of Hurricane Florence. Close to 200,000 residents are still without power, and about 7,800 are living in shelters.

The Cape Fear River, the largest in the state, crested this morning at over 60 feet.

He pledged federal assistance as North Carolina begins the recovery from a storm estimated to have caused billions of dollars in damage and left dozens dead.

"Some of the flooding is actually epic", Trump said at a news conference after landing in Air Force One at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point on North Carolina's Neuse River.

The toll of environmental damage was also mounting as human and animal waste gets swept up in the roiling floodwaters.

Last year, North Carolina farmers also raised 830.8 million chickens for meat, 9 percent of the USA flock, and 32.5 million turkeys, or 13 percent of the US total, according to the USDA.

Trump thanked Henry McMaster and promised the full support of the federal government.

President Trump is in North Carolina today, visiting victims of Hurricane Florence.

The president made similar comments previous year while addressing victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, a storm over which Trump continues to face criticism in terms of his response.

Heavy rains: almost 91cm of rain has fallen over Elizabethtown, North Carolina, and other towns have seen roughly 76cm of rainfall since last Thursday.

After flying into Cherry Point for the morning press briefing, Trump's motorcade traveled 20-plus miles to New Bern, greeted by wavers and watchers who were stopped along US 70. The storm has devastated communities, flooding acres of land, destroying homes, and displacing thousands of people.

Thousands of rescues have taken place in the Carolinas.

After submerging North Carolina with almost 3 feet of rain, the storm dumped more than 6.5 inches of rain in the Northeast, where it caused flash flooding.
