Re: Staring into the Abyss - Hurricane Florence

The storm fell to tropical depression rating early Sunday morning but is still pouring rain on NC, The problem for them is not the wind but now the amount of water that needs to run off, I-95 is closed, I think I-40 is also unpassable near the coast. A lot of the secondary roads are certainly underwater along with a lot of houses.

Lots of rain, spotty power, wind has died down. Some flooding in Rockingham, NC. In other words, I’m at work like normal. As a water operator, people kinda expect us to keep them with water. 😏

Overnight the storm pass about 30 miles north of my house and at that point it was a tropical storm and we were feeling almost zero effect from it. It's a major difference being north of the storm where it has tortured those people for three days now.

Looks like it's almost over for them, 64vert has another big storm on him but nothing behind it at the moment, hopefully that's it.

It looks like this storm is far from over for a lot of folk. I-40 is closed for about half of NC, from the SC line all the way to Rocky Mount, several more major roads closed between Rockingham and Wilmington. You know houses are flooded too. Four days of pouring rain is really a problem.

My sister and husband went to Anderson SC. They have learned a large pine tree twisted off several feet above the the house roof height and crashed into the house. They have a destroyed house to come home to when roads become passable. Right now Onslow county is flooded with no roads passable to where they live. At least they have started the claims process as neighbors who stayed sent them photos of the house.

They have had to find full time nursing care for our oldest sister since the facility she was in has sustained damage. It has to be repaired once roads are passable. Again it is in Onslow County.

Thank the Lord they evacuated.

Just saw a Nashville News2 report that showed flooding at Goldsboro NC. That is 70 miles inland from Jacksonville. So that is a terrible situation down there. There is a church there gathering up supplies to help out victims in that area. They have a tractor trailer they are loading up to take the supplies where needed.

Saw no signs yet of red cross being on the scene anywhere. But I read an ABC report that stated red cross had deployed 1500 workers. Did not say to where. I read a North Florida article that stated red cross North Florida deployed 41 workers but did not state to where, just to help in the Hurricane Florence aftermath.
