NCSAA delays playoffs due to Hurricane Matthew flooding

The estimate is in for the extent of the damage caused by Hurricane Matthew in North Carolina a little over a week ago. COMPLETE COVERAGE OF HURRICANE MATTHEW HEREIn the whirlwind of Matthew's aftermath, the governor has gotten a close-up glimpse of the havoc and heartache the storm wrought. Deal ordered those residents to evacuate on October 6 - five days before the deadline to sign up to vote in the November election. Smithfield noted that Hurricane Matthew "brought flood levels unseen in almost 500 years, unmatched transportation challenges including a 10-day closure of both Interstate 95 and Interstate 40, and widespread devastation to communities across the eastern half of the state".

Hansen has also transferred $100,000 to create housing vouchers to help people who can't stay at home and are struggling to find a place to stay. He arrived in the Capitol House chambers, first offering sympathies to the families of the 26 victims who died because of Matthew, then giving thanks to the countless heroes who came to North Carolina's rescue.

The city's delegation also received the same message shared by South Florida activists to make donations directly to the country and not necessarily through larger organizations or nonprofits.

Nealy 900 people were killed and tens of thousands of people were left homeless after Hurricane Matthew hit the island nation of Haiti on Thursday and Florida on Friday, while at least four have been killed in storm-related incidents in the United States, The Telegraph reported.

The state has worked with federal partners and almost $22 million in federal funding has been approved for individual assistance. The number of power outages is now below 600, down from more than 800,000 at the storm's peak.

A total of 570 roads remained closed in the state because of damage from the flooding. The Cape Fear River has crested and is receding in all areas.

The North Carolina High School Athletic Association announced on Monday that due to the historic flooding in the eastern part of the state, playoff dates for many fall sports will be moved back, including football. The Lumber River is receding throughout Robeson County and is forecast to drop to minor flood stage today.

"We have been delivering 11,000 pounds (daily) of our supplies to the far southwestern corner of Haiti", said U.S. Marine Capt. Brad B. Maa, a CH-53E Super Stallion pilot with SPMAGTF-SC.

In 1999 during Hurricane Floyd, hog lagoons across eastern North Carolina broke open and dumped liquid and solid waste into the storm waters. This is one of the best ways to help fund long-term recovery efforts. "In South Georgia, we've also sent mission teams that can go in and help drag debris out of yards".
