Florence was the first major hurricane of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season. It caused devastating freshwater flooding across much of the southeastern United States and significant storm surge flooding in parts of eastern North Carolina on September 14, 2018. The storm resulted in 22 direct deaths and was associated with 30 indirect fatalities. Hurricane Florence flooded more than 70,000 structures. The Cajun Navy traveled more than 1,000 miles to provide relief for victims. We brought supplies to areas that needed it most, and team members assisted in rescuing horses and other animals caught in floodwaters in Pender County, NC.
