uprooted tree in N.C.Hurricane Florence has left the Carolinas and now a massive effort is under way to eventually bring life back to normal.

Joel Keith, disaster relief coordinator for Global Aid Network, says his team made its way to the isolated town of Wilmington before the storm turned the community into an isolated island.

Global Aid is the humanitarian arm of Cru.

"We got started right away with different work projects even when it was still raining," he recalls, including clearing trees, and passing out lanterns, water filters, and bottled water.

Wilmington residents are now returning to their homes to find that many lost everything due to flooding.

"We've seen homes that have had flooding so bad that it's up above the awning of their garage," he says. "Basically, the whole first story of their home is underwater."
