Michael Jordan Donates $2 Million to Hurricane Florence Relief in North Carolina

Hurricane Florence has claimed 26 lives in North Carolina. At least 37 people were killed in three states, with 27 fatalities in North Carolina.

The six-time NBA champion, who played high-school basketball in Wilmington, North Carolina, and attended college at North Carolina, made two large donations to Carolina residents.

President Donald Trump travels to flood-ravaged North Carolina today to assess the federal response to Hurricane Florence, which drenched the state last week.

In addition, about 30 Sanderson farms that together house more than 6 million chickens around hard-hit Lumberton, North Carolina, remain isolated by floodwater and out of reach of feed trucks, Sanderson said, noting that the number of dead chickens could increase.

Richardson says the incident happened near the Little Pee Dee River, which is one of the bodies of water officials are monitoring for intense flooding following Florence.

-High water: The Cape Fear River crested at 61.5 feet (18.7 meters) early Wednesday morning, according to the National Weather Service. Officials said they will open roads as flooding recedes and downed trees and power lines are cleared away. Heavy rains and swelling rivers are still a major concern as rising flood waters may affect communities barely touched by Florence.

Florence has already killed at least 35 people, including 26 in North Carolina and eight in SC where local media reported that two mental health patients drowned on Tuesday when the sheriff's van the women were in crashed. Authorities in Virginia said one person was dead after an apparent tornado.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, had a letter containing the attempted assault allegation by Christine Blasey Ford in July, but did not take concrete action until last week, after the lengthy confirmation hearings had already taken place.

Officials says "danger still immediate" as record flooding continues to plague parts of the U.S. state.

More than 1,100 roads were still closed across North Carolina, Cooper said, including several portions of interstates 40 and 95.

Roads remain treacherous, he said, and some are still being closed for the first time as rivers swelled by torrential rains inland drain toward the Atlantic.

In the town of Fair Bluff, North Carolina, which has struggled to recover from the devastation of Hurricane Matthew in 2016, only about 50 residents remained on Tuesday, Fair Bluff Police Chief Chris Chafin told Reuters.

Officials in the Carolinas are anxious about what deaths are still to come amid the swelling rivers and flooding from Florence's crawl across both states.
