Hurricane Florence is pushing wind and rain at an alarming rate, across the Eastern coastline.
A third person was pronounced after first responders ran into a blockade created by another fallen tree, failing to make the house calls in a timely manner, the second incident occurring this time in Hampstead, North Carolina.
The fourth casualty was a man in Lenoir County, who put himself at risk as he attempted the installation of a generator, according to a statement read by the state Governor Roy Cooper’s administrative office. Elsewhere in the Carolinas, “Florence” has been causing inundations in flooded dwelling across both states. “The storm is going to continue its violent grind across our state for days,” Cooper warned residents at a news conference this afternoon.
The natural disaster prompted airlines to cancel the majority of outgoing flights, which in itself is cause for concern for resident’s who’ve been flooded out their homes.
