Hurricane Florence volunteer rescues six dogs abandoned in LOCKED cage

Incredible footage shows the moment rescuers freed six dogs locked up in an outdoor cage in North Carolina during Hurricane Florence, as the water level began rapidly rising.

As part of the Charlotte Hornets' effort to help residents who have suffered the devastation caused by Hurricane Florence, Hornets Chairman Michael Jordan had donated $2 million to organizations aiding in the relief and recovery efforts.

Typhoon Mangkhut formed farther south in the western Pacific where water is warmer, which gave the typhoon the "perfect environment to intensify".

More than 25 inches of rain has already fallen in parts of North Carolina, and more than 15 inches of rain has fallen in parts of SC. The woman had driven around barricades to reach a closed road, the sheriff's office in Union County, near North Carolina's border with SC, said on Facebook.

The power and danger of slow-moving flood water isn't as easy to visually grasp as, say, a news reporter braving vicious winds to demonstrate the effect.

Officials on Tuesday raised the death toll from the previously reported 20 deaths to 32, according to CBS News, with 25 of those deaths resulting from the storm's devastation in North Carolina, six in SC, and one in Virginia.

Florence was a tropical depression on Monday with maximum sustained winds of 45 kph as it headed through Virginia and toward New England.

Property damage from the storm is expected to come to $17 billion to $22 billion, the risk management firm Moody's Analytics said.

Fire and rescue crews were waiting to go into many areas to assist with structural damage after Florence dumped up to 36 inches (91 cm) of rain on the state since Thursday.

"Road conditions are still changing", the North Carolina Department of Transportation wrote on Twitter on Tuesday.

"It is ridiculous that we don't have enough fuel supplies back in this area", Stephanie Schauer, 39, a contractor, said as she waited her turn at the gas pump. "What's open now may become impassable".

More than 15,000 people are at shelters in North Carolina, according to CNN.

New Bern, North Carolina, a town of 30,000 located at the confluence of the Trent and Neuse rivers, was one of the hardest-hit spots when Florence first came ashore and City Manager Mark Stephens said it was one of the worst storms in its 308-year history.

About 509,000 homes and businesses were without electricity on Monday in North and SC and surrounding states. "It's been days since the storm".
