US officials are about to begin distributing food, water and other supplies to the city of Wilmington, North Carolina, which remains mostly cut off by floodwaters from Hurricane Florence.
County officials said workers will begin handing out the supplies to stranded residents in the city of 120,000 people on Tuesday morning.
One road was opened into Wilmington at least briefly, and items have been brought into the city by military trucks and helicopters.
The death toll from Florence has risen to at least 32 people in three states, with 25 fatalities in North Carolina.
What remains of the once-powerful Category 4 hurricane is now a rainy, windy mass of low pressure. The system is accelerating on a path towards the heavily populated north-east.
