Hurricane Florence is dumping FEET of rain on the Carolinas

| September 14, 2018

It is and is GOING to be a mess cleaning up after the flooding in a lot more than coastal cities and beachfront towns in North and South Carolina. I’ve watched the slow moving Florence come ashore on TV early this morning and meander along the shoreline most of Friday (thankfully it was a CAT […]

| May 9, 2011
