I spoke to GE last night. He's okay, high and dry. He's not sure how the house near the coast came through the storm. He can't get to it  to check it out. He and the soon-to-be-missus are fine.

He says there are well over 1200 roads in North Carolina that are still flooded. Wilmington is still an island with some rivers over 40 fetet above flood stage already and rising.  Some places the flooding is a mile wide out of the banks of the river. One of the unique problems is that many of the rivers in South and North Carolina flow north into Virginia and West Virginia. The rain is now hitting the mountains and will come down and swell those rivers even more - carrying the flood waters northward.

Good to hear he’s ok!  Same report from a coworker of mine who lives in NC. Hope that flooding goes down quickly.
