FLORENCE BESIEGES CAROLI­NAS WITH FLOOD­WA­TERS

Sun.Star Davao - - TOP STORIES -

Myr­tle Beach, S.C. — Some towns have re­ceived more than 2 feet (60 me­ters) of rain from Florence, and fore­cast­ers warned that drench­ing rains with as much as 3½ feet (1 me­ter) of wa­ter could trig­ger epic flood­ing well in­land through early next week. At least four peo­ple have died, and au­thor­i­ties fear the toll will go higher as the trop­i­cal storm crawls west­ward Satur­day across South Carolina. North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper called Florence an “un­in­vited brute” that could wipe out en­tire com­mu­ni­ties as it grinds its way across land. “The fact is this storm is deadly and we know we are days away from an end­ing,” Cooper said.
