Jordan is donating $1 million each to the American Red Cross and Foundation For The Carolinas' Hurricane Florence Response Fund.

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper, sitting next to President Trump in Cherry Point, North Carolina, told him the state "took a gut punch".

Officials across the state are cautioning residents that more floods are expected this week.

"This is a tough hurricane - one of the wettest we've ever seen, from the standpoint of water", Trump said in a video tweeted out Wednesday.

In North Carolina, where thousands of people remain in shelters or are staying elsewhere, Cooper has urged patience, noting that roads remain treacherous and some are still being closed for the first time.

In North Carolina, transportation officials Tuesday continued advising motorists who ordinarily might take southbound I-95 from Virginia to SC that flooding has made long sections of I-95 in North Carolina impassable.

Jewish groups from across the political spectrum are expressing mourning for Ari Fuld, 45, who was killed in a terrorist. Fuld, a father of four, lived in the settlement of Efrat, in the Etzion area.

Wilmington, population 120,000, was still mostly an island surrounded by floodwaters, and people waited for hours Tuesday for handouts of food, water and tarps.

Heavy rains and swelling rivers are still a major concern as rising flood waters may affect communities barely touched by Florence.

"I know for many people this feels like a nightmare that just won't end", Cooper said.

As Florence was bearing down on the Carolinas last week, Trump reignited the controversy over his handling of Maria by disputing the official death toll of 2,975 in the US territory, which was compiled by public health experts at George Washington University.

"The house in the background is my granny's house, the place my mom has always called home in Ivanhoe, NC and the church that I've gone to with her as long as I can remember", Trump, who's married to President Trump's son, Eric, captioned a Tuesday Instagram post. But critics quickly dubbed it inappropriate for the grim crisis at hand. Some critics said the president's trip took on the tone of a victory lap for successful disaster management.

Jordan played for the University of North Carolina Tar Heels in college and shot to massive worldwide fame while playing for the Chicago Bulls in the National Basketball Association. He warned that the Democrats will soon start criticizing the government response, and "this will be a total lie, but that's what they do, and everybody knows it!"
