You alright - I see N.C was hit hard by Florence.

WILMINGTON, N.C. -- Thousands of people living near North Carolina's rising rivers were ordered evacuated Saturday as hurricane-turned-tropical storm Florence practically parked itself over land and poured on the rain Saturday, raising fears that the state could be in for the most destructive flooding in its history.
The death toll climbed to at least five.
A day after Florence blew ashore in North Carolina with 90 mph (145 kph) winds, Coast Guard officials reported using helicopters to lift scores of people from rooftops and swamped cars near the shoreline, and rescue crews used inflatable boats to reach others trapped in their submerged homes.
