    Default Hey Complwyr

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

    Updated 2 hrs 31 mins ago
    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.

    Yes, Tony, thanks. I am in Charlotte and here we got some minor flooding, and a few power outages. We had a couple of fatalities in the area due to flooding. But Wilmington is apparently inaccessible by land as of this morning, due to massive flooding. The whole eastern plain of the state got hit hard with about 20 inches of rain and lots of flooding. The National Guard and the Red Cross and other entities are down there helping out. Unfortunately, the statewide death toll is now at something like 33.

    Thanks! There were some tragic stories of drownings and trees landing on people.
