Duke Energy Corp, the biggest utility in the Carolinas with over 4 million customers, said it had restored power to more than 1.7 million of its almost 1.8 million customers affected by the storm.

Thousands of homes are still underwater in the Carolinas and thousands of families have had to be rescued from the floods.

While power has been restored to most homes and businesses in the Carolinas and Virginia, and trucks have been picking up mountains of storm debris, water draining toward the Atlantic from inland areas has been sending rivers over their banks across a wide region. More than 33 inches of rain fell in parts of the state.

Florence has killed at least 35 people and left entire towns in North Carolina flooded with muddy, fetid water. North Carolina is one of the leading hog-producing states in the country. In their opinion, the damage caused by hurricane "Florence," it is hard to assess, because many effects will only become apparent after a certain period of time.

Some 650 roads remained closed, the state's department of transportation said, warning motorists not to travel in 17 southeastern counties worst-hit by Florence. McMaster asked Congressional leaders to hurry federal aid.

The Miami Herald never mentioned global warming in 21 stories on Hurricane Florence, Public Citizen found-despite being based in one of the U.S. cities most vulnerable to climate change.

Florence County emergency management officials issued the order Friday morning for about 500 people along 58 roads and streets in the area.

"We can attribute that additional rainfall to human-induced climate change", said Kevin Reed, a professor at Stony Brook University's School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, who contributed to the study.

"Major flooding is still occurring across many of our rivers", North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said at a Thursday news conference.

Florence is blamed for at least 42 deaths in the Carolinas and Virginia, including that of an 81-year-old whose body was found in a submerged pickup truck in SC. The utility said it did not think any coal ash was at risk.

Santee Cooper in SC, a state-owned utility, is placing an inflatable dam around a coal ash pond near Conway, saying the extra 76 centimetres should be enough to keep floodwaters out.

Flooding across the Carolinas was expected to worsen over the next couple of days, forecasters said.

More than 1,000 roads were closed across the state Tuesday, officials said, and about 343,000 people are still without power.

A week after the storm hit, thousands in SC are under new evacuation orders and some of the stranded in Mullins, had to be rescued by helicopter. Some of them have been washed out entirely.

In some areas, it will by days or weeks before the floodwaters fully recede and the landscape returns to normal.
