WILMINGTON, N. C. – Hurricane Florence is still wearing the south Carolina, where the residents have endured a painful week of heavy wind, heavy rain, major flooding, power outages and death.

Frustration and exhaustion are building as thousands of people waiting to go home seven days after the storm began battering the coast.

Florence is the debt of at least 37 deaths. That also applies to that of two women who drowned when a sheriff’s of taking them to a psychiatric hospital and was swept along a road.

President Donald Trump visited North-and South-Carolina, on Wednesday, to say that the government is there to help.

But evacuee and student Evan Jones says that he is just ready for it all to be over. In his words: “I try it all out of my head.”
