“You know it’s hard to leave home,” North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper said this weekend. “You miss it as soon as you walk out the door. But tens of thousands of North Carolinians have had to do that this week.”
After dumping more than two feet of rain in many places, Hurricane Florence left families in both North Carolina and South Carolina homeless and caused an estimated $18 billion in damage. More than 600,000 people remain without power. Seventeen people are dead.
Although the winds and the rain have calmed, the massive recovery effort is just beginning. Victims are still in shock, and they desperately need water, food, and other essentials to get through the uncertainty of the next few weeks.
