Hurricane Florence in Charlotte, North Carolina
Hurricane Florence was a Category 4 hurricane that went through Charlotte, NC but has since been downgraded to a tropical depression. Floodwaters remain a side-effect of the storm that continues to rise, putting more people in danger. When the water levels decrease, the death toll may increase.
According to a report issued on Monday, September 17, 32 people have died in relation to the storm. On Sunday, September 16, 650,000 people were without power. Other complications of Florence include flash flooding and mudslides. Nearby rivers and streams water levels have increased, which poses a danger to those in the area.
The Gov. of North Carolina, Roy Cooper, has warned people of the dangers from Hurricane Florence. On Sunday, September 16, Cooper said, “Flood waters are still raging across the state. Cooper urged residents to stay off the roads and not drive through them“.
