The Triangle is under a flash flood warning until 8 p.m. Sunday. Grey clouds hovered over the stadium, with the wind picking up enough to blow around papers and knock ballcaps off heads.

Here is the newest information on Tropical Storm Florence as it lands on the East Coast.

Some towns have already seen 60cm of rain in two days, with totals forecast to top 1m in places.

Energy Secretary Rick Perry says the US electricity sector has been well prepared for Hurricane Florence even as hundreds of thousands of homes lose power in the storm.

Northern South Carolina and southwestern Virginia: 5 to 10 inches, isolated 15 inches. Unlike Florence, Mangkhut ripped through the north of the main island of Luzon quickly and is now on its way further west towards China.

As storm nears, FEMA chief says he will cooperate with separate probe
A senior DHS official familiar with conversations on Long's future told CNN, "He has never been asked to resign". Since he took control of FEMA a year ago , Long has allegedly been using a government driver to take him home.

Admission was free to the OH vs. Virginia game at Vanderbilt Stadium, but just 5,438 fans turned out to see the Cavaliers prevail 45-31.

"It looks like a battlefield out here", he said. We know how to manage expectations.

"Usually we'd be cleaning roads and done by now", Smith said.

The scenes from the storm are heart-wrenching, counties on the coast of North and SC with catastrophic damage, and the evacuated teen KDKA-TV News spoke to knows he is fortunate after being separated from his sisters and his mom.

"If it rises any higher, I'll break out the jon boat and go somewhere", said Watson, 62, a retired building inspector. The figure for SC was 170,000.

It's part of the same pattern that unfolded during Hurricane Katrina, when some 150,000 to 200,000 people remained in their homes despite federal evacuation orders, and during Hurricane Maria, which an independent study conducted by George Washington University recently revealed resulted in almost 3,000 deaths. "And we had no belief it would be as significant an event as it was", he said. "It's not like being at home, of course". The swift-water rescues on Saturday morning were mostly of people who hadn't heeded those orders, said Burgaw Fire Capt. Nick Smith.

Manchester City Annual Revenue Crosses £500m
Guardiola also said City would not sell star man Kevin De Bruyne for a world record fee of £225m. Manchester City has now become the 2nd richest club in terms of revenue in The Premier League .

Around Virginia, where the effects of Florence were hardly evident Saturday, Richmond watched film and lifted weights after getting home at 2:30 a.m. Friday. The number of counties getting this level of help is likely to increase. The next day Mangkhut was over open water heading for China. For the Spiders, that's Colonial Athletic Association rival Stony Brook.

"It's not often that we have to prepare for a hurricane in the mountains, but we are doing so on our campus", Jason Marshburn, the director of safety and emergency management at Appalachian State University in Boone, wrote in a letter to students and faculty members. Normally, it deploys 100 to 110 on game days.

Non-profit groups are preparing to serve tens of thousands of meals daily in the most-damaged areas, while state and federal emergency officials are locating temporary housing, including hotel rooms, for storm victims in the weeks or months that they're displaced. By kickoff, the stands were almost full with about 75,000 people in the 80,000-seat stadium. "We have two boats and all our worldly possessions", said Susan Patchkofsky, who refused her family's pleas to evacuate and stayed at Emerald Isle with her husband.

They finally made it, and found a soggy, stinking mess. "He was so happy and relieved", Snipe said.

Early Saturday, approximately 20 people were rescued near Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, in Jacksonville, North Carolina, by military officials and delivered to the Piney Green Volunteer Fire Department before being transferred to Onslow County shelters.

Ricky Hughes of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and his wife, Sheba, took advantage.

Jose Mourinho reveals Marcus Rashford's 'best position'
Jose Mourinho will ask Luke Shaw if he is ready to play against Watford after he suffered concussion against Spain last Saturday. Mourinho also claimed that the media are obsessed with him and his handling of Rashford.

"It was scary seeing everything on the internet thinking I use to live there, I still live there, and having to go back to see how much the storm has destroyed", Gabe said.
