U.S. President Donald Trump warned SC on Wednesday "water is coming your way" in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence, as the death toll from the massive storm rose to at least 36 after two women were swept away in a sheriff's van.
In cities well inland, like Fayetteville, North Carolina, the floodwaters are continuing to rise, even as the main remnants of the storm moved over the Mid-Atlantic states and into New England on Tuesday.
Gov. Roy Cooper said 16 rivers are at major flood stage Tuesday with an additional three forecast to peak Wednesday and Thursday.
On Tuesday morning, more than 320,000 homes remained without power across North Carolina.
Trump is expected to arrive at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point in Havelock, North Carolina at about 10:30 a.m. local time and return to Washington D.C.at 6:15 p.m., according to the White House.
Wilmington is still virtually cut off from the rest of the state, but officials say they'll open routes as soon as flooding recedes and downed trees and powerlines are cleared away. The state's two major interstates, I-40 and I-95, are closed in many locations.
Previously, North Carolina's rainfall record from a storm was 24 inches, set by Hurricane Floyd almost twenty years ago.

South Carolina's governor plans to meet with top Department of Defense leaders to discuss the state's response to Florence. The National Weather Service says more than 4 inches (10 centimeters) of rain had fallen by Tuesday morning from the Elmira area to counties in southeastern NY.

As the South continues to deal with massive flooding from the former hurricane, residents of the heavily populated Northeast are dealing with storm-related headaches of their own. Trump is expected to visit Myrtle Beach while in SC.
He noted that landfills, hazardous waste dumps, factories, and coal ash ponds are all located near the Cape Fear and Neuse Rivers in the eastern part of the state.
Hurricane Matthew caused a partial structural failure at one lagoon, while none overflowed from rain and 14 were inundated by floodwaters, according to the industry group NC Pork Council.
