Firefighters wash dead fish off I-40 after floodwaters recede

Firefighters wash dead fish off I-40 after floodwaters recede”

Rivers swelling with the floodwaters of former Hurricane Florence are threatening to swamp communities near the SC coast, leaving thousands ready to evacuate.

Forecasters say a storm system off the coast of the Florence-battered Carolinas will dump even more rain on the already saturated states. Battle said flooding from Florence has wiped out the 150 or so homes rebuilt afterward.

Animal rescue volunteer Raina Nyliram said the drugs she administered were all over-the-counter medication.

"We had to evacuate again, all over again, and got trapped in a bunch of water and nearly lost our lives", said White.

Sheriff's deputies in North Carolina are trying to determine whether the death of a man whose body was found in a ditch is related to Hurricane Florence. But even though Hedges housed the animals in a makeshift shelter to save their lives, the state says shelters can not operate unless they are licensed.

Emergency management officials said residents whose homes were damaged or destroyed will begin moving into hotel rooms next week. The program initially will be open to residents in nine counties and then will be expanded.

Florence killed 44 people - 33 in North Carolina, nine in SC and two in Virginia.

A North Carolina statute requires that animal shelters acquire a certificate of registration from the Animal Welfare Section of the state's Department of Agriculture before they can legally operate.

He said Saturday that the video and photos show sand and "potential coal ash" leaving the Sutton site, and the DEQ will put people on the ground when it is safe.

Santee Cooper said it has removed more than 1 million tons of coal ash, which can contaminate water and harm fish and wildlife, from the site in the past few years.
