More than three dozen flood gauges in North and SC showed flooding.

The death toll from Hurricane Florence climbed to at least 37, including two mental health patients who drowned when a sheriff's van was swept away by floodwaters, and North Carolina's governor pleaded with thousands of evacuees not to return home just yet.

Duke Energy Corp said on Friday that breaches in a cooling lake dam forced it to shut down its natural gas-fired L.V. Sutton plant in North Carolina.

Forecasters grew increasingly anxious about New Bern being flooded by storm surge on the Neuse River the closer Florence got to the coast, and their fears proved to be well-founded: a 10-foot (3-meter) surge was reported in the city, along with more than 16 inches (40 centimeters) of rainfall.

Cooper, meanwhile, has praised efforts of first responders who evacuated people from rising floodwaters. Trump called Florence "one of the most powerful and devastating storms ever to hit our country".

You've Been Getting Chrissy Teigen's Name Wrong This Whole Time
But it will be interesting to see on the Emmys red carpet if any of the commentators take notice of this name bombshell. Chrissy Teigen said people have been mispronouncing her last name for years and she hasn't corrected them.

"Major flooding is still occurring across many of our rivers", North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said at a Thursday news conference.

"Now is the time to come together and begin the work of rebuilding our communities and making families whole", Cooper said in a statement.

Towns and cities across the state were filling thousands of sandbags, finalizing evacuation plans and organizing rescue crews as they nervously watched swollen rivers rise near or beyond their flood stages, a week after Florence dumped some three feet of rain on the region. It is feared that the death toll could rise because flooded rivers, swollen by huge rainfalls, are expected to remain risky over the next few days in the Carolinas in the US.

Hewett said the river could crest to its highest historic level - about 62 feet - by Wednesday.

McMaster said Friday he hopes United Health Care's generosity inspires other companies across the state to donate to the One SC Fund to help the recovery from Hurricane Florence's floods. McMaster asked Congressional leaders to hurry federal aid.

Kavanaugh accuser wants Federal Bureau of Investigation probe before she will testify
Dianne Feinstein, a Democrat from California and ranking member of the Judiciary Committee. "He should testify under oath". Kavanaugh has had a relatively smooth confirmation track until the allegations against him were reported last week.

Environmental concerns were also continuing to mount.

While the rain subsided, some rivers are still rising, and North and SC officials warn the flooding danger is far from over.

"We've been working to address environmental hazards caused by industrial waste mismanagement in North Carolina for over two decades", said Will Hendrick, Waterkeeper Alliance staff attorney and manager of the Pure Farms, Pure Waters campaign in a statement received by EcoWatch.

Gov. Roy Cooper, a Democrat, said in a news release Thursday that he wanted the legislature to return on October 9 to handle Hurricane Florence relief. The National Hurricane Center said it was monitoring four areas in the Atlantic for signs of a new tropical weather threat.

Thirty-one deaths have been attributed to the storm in North Carolina, eight in SC and one in Virginia.
