Hurricane Matthew and historic flooding. Quick compilation from Hurricane Matthew and aftermath over the last few days. I will be putting together a full video and blog when the event is over, as we are still not through this. There are many concerns of continuing major flooding in many eastern NC areas. Most of these areas have been without power since Saturday, and the danger is very real for many communities.

Locations in the video include Wrightsville Beach, Myrtle Beach, Williams, Lake Surf and the flooded areas from Lumberton to northwest of Fayetteville.
