Hopefully he is OK.  Probably no power anywhere near there so no internet either.

That's what I am hoping!

I had 3 rental storage units with some bush hogs, military motors, implements, etc. I had just put a piece of furniture that my grandmother had and my mother wanted me to have. I brought it back a few weeks ago and could not get it in my house yet- when I saw the area had flooded I was upset, not about the motors and tractors, but my family's piece of furniture- got to get back onto the units on Monday and only had about 5-6" in the units and I had blocked up the piece of furniture about 10" high- to say the least I was relieved. Even the military motors were higher than the water so I was lucky. I starting blocking all the stuff up more for this next wave of water, but when I heard today the water level was going up to 28' - I decided to start pulling stuff out. I have rented another unit at another site that is high and dry.1954df7764cd6cc68928e8b0cd2040db.jpgb9ec2a44354575e20c09a692df5edc85.jpg
Have two trees that will have to be removed as well. But all is good, my family is safe.

They came out this evening and said the Neuse River will be closer to 29 ft and may crest on Friday rather than Saturday. They are slowly closing more roads in my area as the water comes up. We have a 9pm to 7am curfew for next several days.

This is the road I use to take to town most of the time. It's approximately 30' ft wide and 8-10' deep- those culvert pipes are 4' . Also note that white pvc pipe is the water line to my area.tallf1932f157dad16565138d0bbdd344629.jpg3ead234c745f3eb32f590fca748df74c.jpg421f658a1a633b3f1d1c76f3870c3f91.jpg
