Not sure if this is where Florence stuff should go, but...
Does anyone have friends or relatives affected by Hurricane Florence? Hope all are safe. Looks like bad flooding, but not as bad a storm as feared.
My aunt and grandfather both live in Wilmington, but luckily were spared. My aunt's house only sustained minor damage to her roof and my grandfather lives in an apartment in an independent living community on the 3rd floor. They have generators to keep the common areas going, but he'd doesn't have electricity in his apartment, neither does my aunt. They have no idea when the power will come back on, it could be days or weeks.
But not everyone was so lucky, and the flooding down there is real. There are still areas that are completely impassable, including large sections of interstate 40 south of the junction with interstate 95. Anyone who lives near a river probably lost everything.
