Sigh oh my the end of the world! Ive lived in NC my whole life. Unusual yes very. Scary? Hell yes very. But nothing living through 1999 Hurricane
Floyd. I guess a lot of people thought that was the end of the world as well in eastern NC, 12 years later we are still here.
57 deaths; 7000 homes destroyed; 17,000 homes uninhabitable; 56,000 homes damaged; most roads east of I-95 flooded; Tar River crests 24 feet above
flood stage; over 1500 people rescued from flooded areas; over 500,000 customers without electricity at some point; 10,000 people housed in temporary
shelters; much of Duplin and Greene Counties under water; severe agricultural damage throughout eastern NC.
Coffins coming out of the ground due to the flooding.
Stop the doom and fear mongering given enough time extraordinarily bad weather happens no matter how unusual. Something like this happened in NC in
1984, given enough time stuff repeats.
