HeadlineSep 19, 2018

The death toll from Hurricane Florence has risen to 35, while the flooding is worsening in some parts of North Carolina. President Trump is heading to North Carolina today, where some 10,000 people are still living in shelters and nearly 350,000 are without power. Meanwhile in South Carolina, two women detainees died Tuesday when they were being transported in a sheriff’s van which was overcome by floodwaters. The women were both mental health patients being detained for medical transport. Two sheriff’s deputies in the vehicle were able to be rescued from the rising waters.
