U.S. President Donald Trump warned SC on Wednesday "water is coming your way" in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence, as the death toll from the massive storm rose to at least 36 after two women were swept away in a sheriff's van. "You're going to have to start over, that's all we can do".

The death toll from Storm Florence has risen to 37 after officials confirmed the deaths of two SC mental health patients, officials say.

President Trump has a true appreciation for the power of nature.

There was a lighthearted moment as one man told Trump that he had named his dog after the president. "What's the law?" the president asked.

He also joked with a family who had a large yacht they didn't own wash up against their house.

About 3500 vehicles came through for supplies on the first day they were available, county officials said in a Facebook post. "Maybe it just becomes theirs".

And he was caught on camera telling a person to whom he had just handed food to "have a good time".

During the briefing with Gov. Roy Cooper and federal and other state officials, Trump pledged to be with storm victims "100 percent" as they recover from the torrential rains and heavy flooding that Florence left behind. "You take care of yourself", he said. Residents in the nearby town of Conway worry that's going to send water from the rising Waccamaw River to flood their homes instead.

Much work remains in the recovery efforts, officials said.

"I know it was hard to leave home and it's even harder to wait and wonder whether you even have a home to go back to, but please for your safety and the effectiveness of our emergency operations do not try to return home yet", announced Governor Cooper.

After submerging North Carolina with almost 3 feet (1 metre) of rain, the storm dumped more than 6.5 inches (16.5 centimetres) of rain in the Northeast, where it caused flash flooding, wind damage and prompted at least one tornado warning, the weather service said. "All of the folks from the federal government that are around the table are confirming it".

"I love that area".

About 161,000 homes and businesses were still without electricity in North Carolina, around a quarter of them in the county where Wilmington is located.

President Trump also shared a statement via Twitter expressing the Administration's dedication to supporting those impacted by Florence.

He was accompanied by Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, Federal Emergency Management Agency chief Brock Long, Senators Richard Burr and Thom Tillis of North Carolina and Senators Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott of SC. To date the Coast Guard has saved over 400 lives and 200 pets. The area was inundated with rain that caused concern for large-scale flooding in the North Carolina and SC area.

"The Department of Health and Human Services and Centers for Disease Control have deployed dozens of teams to the region to treat the sick or injured and prevent illness".
