OK I don't normally post much in terms of events ect bear with me. We got lucky this storm I cut limbs ect beforehand thanks to my dad teaching me arborist or whatever you call it skills I heard ahead of time and prepped. Not many were as lucky. Bet I can say is I wanna share a lil how it effected us in my area to give the idea of how much worse they have it lower in the us. Some of these were taken today just to show how long these efforts are taking. A major thanks to Ohio, nj, ny and any other states that sent their best rescue and recovery teams. As I said in my house we got lucky being without power, a lil water damage inside and cut off for two days from civilization is small compared what many others have lost and I can only wish and pray they recover and if not same better than before and just hope maybe my share can help others understand and at least pray others are OK. Some are of a normally lower river shut down interstate 95 and more For those with family down here that are hard to reach? I hope this may help in a sense idk either way forgive me I'm not the best with wordsreceived_1160230530689789.jpeg received_1160229427356566.jpeg received_1160229444023231.jpeg received_1160229717356537.jpeg received_1160229810689861.jpeg received_1160229600689882.jpeg received_1160229714023204.jpeg received_1160229770689865.jpeg received_1160229840689858.jpeg received_1160229844023191.jpeg received_1160229880689854.jpeg received_1160230537356455.jpeg received_1160230374023138.jpeg received_1160230147356494.jpeg received_1160229850689857.jpeg received_1160230034023172.jpeg received_1160230077356501.jpeg

Thanks for sharing the pictures- I had electricity back on Sunday afternoon- but just got my internet and tv this morning- I am just catching up on all the local news. All this flooding over here is a real tragedy for sure.

The homeless are staying in so!e local schools converted into shelters as far as I know. And yes the flooding alone was a nightmare and still is I'm staying with friends out I'm Raeford hence my having internet atm. Alot of cell towers including two next to my house in cedar creek went out. duke energy is left with alot f work and many pwc customers and others are left waiting as the respective companies have to wait on duke to repair their own issues, many sub stations for septic have gone out or been destroyed boiling water is a must.They have finally declared this a disaster area and are granted funding to begin repairs. Robeson county cumberland and parts of hoke county are still under water currently. Local moose lodges and even insurance agencies are offering free water on the off side a few places were caught for price gouging like a Walmart selling 24 pack Deere park water for 24 dollars an I hop charging alot extra for takeout ect. Thankfully they're caught taking advantage of the less fortunate. Fema has been on-site I was shown the website for filing for relief if anyone needs this as well I can share

Roy Cooper wants to play tough ball. He should throw his weight around. He should have charges filed against the gougers. He came after a gas station in my town for running their gas price up when the pipeline ruptured a few weeks ago. He should do the same now.

My sister lives in Charleston. They've opened things up, but she still hasn't gone home yet. And they didn't get it nearly bad as you folks out east.

Good luck to you.

From what I hear the Walmart faces charges from the AG Roy cooper and the rest same cannot name names at least till charges fully filed but from the news he is going after them idk if he will follow through but he should I would hope. I can't say definite but that's what they reported yesterday at least. I hear ya just mentioned that to my wife today funny coincidence lol

Some rivers are just now reaching their crests. Hope they go down soon so you folks down there can start recovering.

I was born and raised in South Mills, NC, now mostly flooded. Never saw that after Hurricane Donna or any other event, this was the hundred year storm.
