Yes, I just read about that, a little while ago. :( At the same time, pictures & video footage of people on rooftops, and rescues going on, in Wilmington NC, where *mandatory* evacuations began a few days ago :roll: . I am very saddened to hear of the loss of life, I'm sure there will be more deaths, this thing has just begun. It is crazy, to me, that so many people will not it seriously when being told to LEAVE. There were some folks planning on holing up in a bar for the duration, for a several day hurricane party. Fools. :frowns:

Not to belittle the power and destructive force of hurricanes. But Fox News just had a reporter on the beach at Myrtle Beach SC. I have dug clams lots of days on the beach on the Washington coast when the wind and the waves were much worse than they were where that reporter was.

Hurricane season and looters season needs to start at the same time. Looters are a real poc.

Hurricane Florence death toll has reached 17,.. 11 in North Carolina and 6 in South Carolina.

2 infants, 3 months and 7 months old each killed in separate tree falling on their house incidents.
Two 60 year olds died of carbon monoxide poisoning from using a generator.
An 81 yr old man died Friday when he fell and struck his head while packing to evacuate.
A 77 yr old man found dead is believed to have died from a fall when he went outside and the wind blew him down.
68 yr old man was electrocuted connecting 2 extension cords outside in the rain.
A husband and wife died in a house fire.
A 61 yr old woman was killed when she struck a tree while driving.
A guy drove into standing water and drowned, and a couple of others died in flash flooding on a roadway.
All a shame but overall not as bad as I expected.
