Florence Claims 18 lives

  • According to the authorities, Florence has so far killed 18 people and there are over 100 who are trapped in North and South Carolina. Authorities also believe that the worst of the storm is yet to come. The rain is expected to continue as a result of tropical depression. Many rivers may also crest at the flood stage.

    North Carolina's state transportation department has warned people to not visit the state. A number of highways are closed. Some parts of North and South Carolina are now completely impassable.
