Police in North Carolina on Friday confirmed the first deaths related to Hurricane Florence, which is bearing down on the Carolinas.
The Wilmington Police Department said that a mother and infant were killed when a tree fell on their house on Friday.
Police said the father has also been transferred to an area hospital with injuries. His condition was not immediately clear.
Hurricane Florence made landfall in North Carolina at 7:15 a.m. EDT on Friday near Wrightsville Beach, N.C., according to the National Hurricane Center.
Federal and local officials have been urging residents for days to heed evacuation orders and make preparations for Florence, which is currently a Category 1 storm.
After the politicization of Hurricane Maria will the Democratic Media Complex be able to capitalize on these deaths and will they try to expand the numbers of deaths 6 months out?
Will they now create a new metric to define what is considered a death caused by a hurricane?
Why did they stay and not leave?
This storm has been politicized from when it was just a butterfly flapping its wings. If there’s a way to blame Trump for a natural catastrophe, the left will do it.
Gonna be fun the next few days. Kavanaugh will be confirmed, the hurricane will kill fewer people than expected, and 50 million liberal heads will crack open and there will spill out ..... nothing.
They’ll already blaming the entire hurricane on Trump.
Democrats will be turning North Carolina into North Puerto Rico, and will be using a computer model to estimate their TRUE number of deaths caused by Trump’s hurricane Florence.
10 deaths? 20 dead? Nope, will be in the hundreds, and their computer model can’t lie, since it’s not human.
He (President Trump) now has the ability to control the weather! Id there anything this man cant do??!!
is there not Id there. Stupid autocorrect.
The computer program with estimate 3,000
I expect we wont get an official death toll for months, and then itll be a wildly-inflated estimate to include every obese diabetic who had a heart attack within a thousand miles in the 6 months following Florence.
I blame the trees. Cut them down.
It’s the media pushing out this stuff.....heck Bloomberg just tried to sabatoge Trumps trade deal with China by putting out false information that never happened.
You cannot believe the media....people still haven’t learned this. They’re the ones feeding the public this crap.
The media is the deep state.
From the time of Creation this earth has existed because of a delicate and beautiful system called nature. Weather patterns, ocean currents and all the rest are of a grand design. Everything has a purpose. Humans with limited minds may not recognize the why’s and wherefore’s, but that doesn’t mean they have not. Hurricanes have been with earth from the beginning and the number and strength has fluctuated back and forth throughout history.
Why do we have hurricanes. I don’t know, but I can imagine it cleans and revitalized the swamps and low lands wherever it passes.
“Theyll already blaming the entire hurricane on Trump.”
That is quite a compliment for the President. The left is saying he has as much power to cause hurricanes as does God. Trump is good in what he does, but come on!! - like God!! Those people are insane!!
I guess Superstorm Sandy was OBAMA’S HURRICANE
Well, surely they can impeach Trump for this gross negligence! He should have had that tree removed before the storm.
TRUMP’S FAULT! /s
Should we go back and re-calculate every past hurricane based on their new standards?
Should we hold them accountable to apply the same guesstimates to this hurricane?
What is the period we can now count as 'death from hurricane'?
