Charges dropped against woman who sheltered animals during hurricane

"We still have a foot between the top of the river and the top of the dam".

That averted potential environmental and transportation problems. The president met with South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster in Conway, S.C., and North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper in Cherry Point, N.C.

The floodwater from the river also had not made it over a temporary barrier hastily built on U.S. Highway 501, the main link to Myrtle Beach.

Emergency management officials on Wednesday scaled back their flooding forecasts for coastal SC but urged residents not to be complacent as the rivers swollen by Hurricane Florence wreak havoc on the state.

Hedges was in the process of converting a warehouse space into a proper animal shelter when she chose to use the building to help keep pets dry during the storm.

Delbridge added he wants to focus on violent crime cases and said the North Carolina Veterinary Medical Board would determine what steps to take next involving this case.

Between September 13 and 17, approximately 8 trillion gallons of rain fell on North Carolina alone, resulting in catastrophic flooding in many parts of the state, according to the National Weather Service.

Robeson County Sheriff Kenneth Sealey issued a statement that says his office received calls that animals were stranded on a rooftop in the Orrum community. Ninety-seven were dogs. The Humane Society is among the groups caring for the animals.

However, according to WNCN, prosecutors have chose to to drop the charges against Hedges.

State Emergency Management Division Director Kim Stenson said Wednesday those numbers are quite preliminary since flooding is still occurring and could affect hundreds or thousands of additional homes. He urged anyone with damage from the flood contact FEMA as soon as possible to begin the claim process.

Long visited SC on Wednesday and said the agency has already had 4,000 people register and paid $500,000 in claims in the state. They got to save themselves.

CC Sabathia gets ejected on goal pitch, loses bonus
Sabathia needed to complete seven innings Thursday to earn a $500,000 contract bonus by reaching 155 innings this season. NY went on to score four runs in the inning, including home runs by Luke Voit and Giancarlo Stanton.

Between 6,000 and 8,000 people have been exhorted to leave, but it was not clear how many had done so as of Tuesday evening, said Randy Akers, deputy public information officer for Georgetown County. That was almost three times the damage reported by farmers from Hurricane Matthew in 2016.

The first set of images (above) shows how flooding has affected water quality in the White Oak River, New River and Adams Creek, which all flow into the Atlantic Ocean.

Residents of a flooded North Carolina town are suing a railroad company, alleging it impeded efforts to plug a gap in a levee.

The lawsuit cites a May 2018 report by state officials calling for a floodgate and saying planning was underway. Florence has killed at least 47 people - 36 in North Carolina; nine in SC; and two in Virginia.

A top rainfall meteorologist calculates that Hurricane Florence is the nation's second rainiest storm in 70 years. North Carolina officials blamed the death of a 67-year-old man who fractured his neck cleaning up storm debris September 18 in Craven County on the storm.

Cooper said the death is the 36th storm fatality for the state.

South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster said the river flooding caused by Florence, which dropped almost 20 inches (50 cm) of rain in some places in the state, is something his state has not had to cope with before.

Conway Fire Chief Le Hendrick in part credits how accurately predicted the flooding was. Those same homes were flooded when firefighters surveyed them Monday and Tuesday.

The Waccamaw was expected to crest by late Thursday at 21.2 to 26.4. feet in the upriver communities of Conway and Bucksport, the National Weather Service Southeast River Forecast Center in Atlanta said. And even the new flooding forecasts are still well above records set just two years ago by Hurricane Matthew.

Officials originally expected flooding in the worst areas of Georgetown County to be from 5 to 10 feet.
