  • Dozens of homes are surrounded by floodwaters brought to the area by Hurricane Florence in Pender County N.C. on Saturday Sept. 22 2018

"Hurricane Florence has deeply wounded our state, wounds that will not fade soon as the flood waters finally recede, " Governor Roy Cooper said Saturday. He asked congressional leaders to hurry federal aid.

At least 40 people have died as a result of the storm, with most of those in North Carolina.

According to a Facebook post from the Wayne County Government, Wayne County Animal Services visited the site on September 17 at the request of the North Carolina State Department of Agriculture.

Thompson has opened an internal investigation into the incident, which happened while two of his deputies were transporting two female mental patients as floodwaters in northeastern SC rose after Hurricane Florence.

A county spokesman tells PEOPLE he can not elaborate on the charges, but he stressed that they arose from the alleged unlicensed medical care and not the operation of a temporary shelter.

The shelter owner took in 17 cats and 10 dogs, a lot of them coming from elderly couples who were forced to evacuate their homes.

Officials at South Carolina's state-owned utility were still warily monitoring two coal-ash ponds near Conway.

The Polo Farms neighborhood off S.C. Highway 905 is largely underwater, on Monday, Sept. 24, 2018, in Longs, S.C., due to Hurricane Florence's deluge.

He said that Red Cross shelters in North Carolina have about 1,700 people in them on Tuesday, down from a peak of 22,000.

National Weather Service hydrologist Todd Hamill says most of the rivers have crested and that water is moving toward the coast.

"The work has been done", Georgetown Mayor Brendon Barber said.

Hurricane Florence devastated many parts of the state, but when church members learned that Living Water Baptist Church was spared, they went to great lengths to get to Sunday service.

Video showed firefighters blasting the dead fish to the highway shoulder with a fire hose in eastern North Carolina, WCSC says. People there "still need to be cautious". Officials are working to get information to people there to make sure they take precautions.

County officials on Monday said they planned to hold a news conference at 3 p.m. (1900 GMT) to update residents on the status of the rivers and possible evacuation plans.

Residents in areas that aren't expected to flood were also being urged to evacuate since roads may be cut off, according to a statement by Georgetown County spokesperson Jackie Broach cited by CBS Charleston, S.C. affiliate WCSC-TV.

Shelters opened early Monday at Georgetown High School in Georgetown and Waccamaw Middle School at Pawleys Island.

Rivers and waterways in North and SC were expected to peak on Sunday and remain at risky flood levels for days, the US National Weather Service warned more than a week after the arrival of Hurricane Florence, which has killed at least 40 people.

Floodwaters of 5 to 10 feet (1.5 to 3 m) are expected to inundate Georgetown and surrounding communities by late this week as the Pee Dee and Waccamaw rivers overurn their banks along the low-lying tidal flats where they converge at Winyah Bay, which flows into the Atlantic.

Randy Webster, emergency management director for Horry County, said the flooding will be unprecedented.
