WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) – President Donald Trump will have a firsthand look at the impact of former Hurricane Florence.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders says Trump plans to travel on Wednesday to North Carolina, which bore the brunt of the powerful storm.
Days after the hurricane rolled through, the region is dealing with massive flooding. In Wilmington, North Carolina, residents lined up by the hundreds Tuesday for free food, water and tarps while officials managed to open two routes into the waterlocked city.
Florence is being blamed for at least 34 deaths in three states.
Remnants of the once-powerful Category 4 hurricane are now a rainy, windy mass of low pressure.
