As recovery from Hurricane Dorian continues, NCEM has requested assistance from FEMA in conducting joint preliminary damage assessments in storm-affected counties. The assessments will begin this week and are the first step in determining the scope of Hurricane Dorian's damage.
The State Medical Examiner's Office says a man who died from injuries sustained in a chainsaw accident while clearing a downed tree is the state's third death resulting from Hurricane Dorian.
"State agencies and our partners will continue to deliver supplies and aid until our coast has recovered from Hurricane Dorian. The sad news of an additional confirmed fatality is a reminder that though the storm has moved away, we are still experiencing the dangers from the damage," said Governor Cooper.
The 54-year-old man died Saturday while attempting to use a chainsaw to remove a tree in New Hanover County. The previous two storm-related deaths included a Pamlico County man who collapsed Friday and a Columbus County man who fell from a ladder while preparing his home for the storm on Sept. 2.
