Current U.S. Response
Hurricane Florence, although weakened, continues to cause catastrophic flooding, including prolonged significant river flooding, to the Carolina coast and even inland. Rainfall could total 40 inches in three days in some areas.
More than a million Carolinians were ordered to evacuate, with 10 million in warning or watch areas. North Carolina's governor termed Florence "extremely dangerous, life threatening, historic."
Current International Response
At least 36 people are dead and dozens more feared buried in a landslide in the Philippines due to Typhoon Mangkhut (local name Ompong), which continues to cause dangerous flooding and to destroy shelters and livelihoods including crops even though it has now passed over. The equivalent of a Category 5 hurricane, Typhoon Mangkhut crossed Hong Kong and is now lashing southern China.
