In North Carolina 2 dead, 20 missing county flooded by Fred.

The storm that blew through the area made roads impassible, washed out bridges and swamped homes and businesses.

The Another Fred-related death was reported earlier in the week in Florida, where a driver hydroplaned and flipped his car into a flooded ditch.

The 200 people searched flooded areas along the Pigeon River.

At least 10 bridges were damaged or destroyed in the Cruso community, where engineering teams worked to construct temporary bridges to allow people in and out of their homes.

“Our search crews are actively working, searching for more victims and more survivors,” Travis Donaldson, emergency services director for Haywood County, said at a news conference.

Kevin Sandefur, CEO and founder of BearWaters Brewing Company in Canton, told reporters the flooding wiped out an outdoor seating section the brewery added to make customers feel safer during the pandemic.

It was very frightening. I was more concerned for everybody’s safety,” he said.

My partner was the last one out of the building and barely made it out of here in his truck before they closed the bridges and the streets because it was up that high.

It’s very scary how quickly it came up and overwhelmed us.

An emergency shelter at a nearby high school housed 11 people Thursday.

North Carolina Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper surveyed flood damage Thursday afternoon, vowing afterward to help the area rebuild and noting: “Storms are more ferocious than they were before. Climate change has contributed to that.”

Republican US Sen. Thom Tillis toured the area earlier in the day.

Farther north, about 10 families evacuated their homes in the rural town of Western in central New York as waters rose.

I’ve got three roads that are closed and 15 that have flooding,” said Western town Supervisor Diane Butler, who noted the town is still recovering from a tornado last month that downed trees and damaged homes.

Butler said there were no injuries.

The officials from the Cayuga County sheriff’s office in the Finger Lakes tourist region said they were barricading roads as they warned on social media that flooded roads may be washed out or have heavy currents.

The Authorities combing areas of North Carolina flooded by the remnants of Tropical Storm Fred said on Thursday that two people have been found dead and about 20 were unaccounted for.

Fred now a post tropical cyclone was pushing through New York and New England with drenching rains, and Tropical Storm Henri was sending dangerous waves onto East Coast beaches.

The Forecasters said Henri will likely strengthen into a hurricane as it approaches the northeastern US early next week.
