    The head of the U.S. government's disaster relief agency says Florence is unfortunately delivering the damage that was predicted as it sweeps across the Carolinas.

    Brock Long told NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday that the Federal Emergency Management Agency is working to meet the demands of North Carolina officials "as they're coming up to us."

    Long noted that "recovery is always a very frustrating process for people when they've lost their livelihoods, but we're going to be OK."

    Long says the agency's immediate focus is on search-and-rescue efforts and meeting the needs of people who are in shelters.
