These photos show how much Hurricane Florence 'ravaged' the Carolinas

Jim Fraboni is preparing for the worst as an "unheard" amount of floodwater from Hurricane Florence is slowly flowing through the Carolinas.

"We've been working to address environmental hazards caused by industrial waste mismanagement in North Carolina for over two decades", said Will Hendrick, Waterkeeper Alliance staff attorney and manager of the Pure Farms, Pure Waters campaign in a statement received by EcoWatch. The National Hurricane Center said it was monitoring four areas in the Atlantic for signs of a new tropical weather threat.

The Waccamaw is expected to reach perhaps 20 feet next week, almost 10 feet past flood stage and two feet past the record set during Matthew two years ago.

"I think it's easily going to be in the billions of dollars", Troxler said in an interview Thursday, calling the damage "catastrophic" and "unbelievable".

In Conway, South Carolina, authorities said residents could see damage in homes that have not flooded before.

Florence is blamed for at least 42 deaths in the Carolinas and Virginia, including that of an 81-year-old whose body was found in a submerged pickup truck in SC. Sixty-nine thousand people there have applied for FEMA assistance as their neighbors in SC, like those who live near the Waccamaw, are anxiously watching the waters rise.

Flood waters need to lower before authorities can send inspectors to determine the extent of spills, Michael Regan, leader of the state's environmental agency, said in Saturday's press conference.

More than three dozen flood gauges in North and SC showed flooding.

North Carolina houses over 2,200 hog CAFOs and more than 3,900 poultry CAFOs, many of which stood directly in Florence's path. EWG estimates these facilities can produce up to 10 billion gallons of waste a year.

President Donald Trump sought to offer comfort Wednesday to families who suffered losses in Hurricane Florence, declaring "America grieves for you" as he arrived in North Carolina to survey damage left by the powerful storm.

He said then that two people who know each other approached the company about a weeklong flight to the moon and back. Musk cautioned at the news conference that SpaceX is not certain about the 2023 timing for the moon tourism mission.

The president traveled south Wednesday as the region continues to grapple with the aftermath of a storm that North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said was "epic".

The death toll from Hurricane Florence climbed to at least 37, including two mental health patients who drowned when a sheriff's van was swept away by floodwaters, and North Carolina's governor pleaded with thousands of evacuees not to return home just yet.

About 25 miles (40 kilometers) nearer to the SC coast, Kevin Tovornik tore out carpet and removed furniture as a preventative measure because he expected flooding at the house he has owned for 20 years in Conway, where the Waccamaw River was still rising.

The president also expressed his gratitude to first responders and applauded their continued efforts to rescue those trapped in flood waters. Parts of the main north-south route on the East coast, Interstate 95, and the main road to Wilmington, Interstate 40, remain flooded.
