Into the Hurricane

Into the Hurricane

Hurricane Florence, although downgraded from the projected category five, hit North Carolina coast and slowly ground it’s way inland, dumping 8 trillion gallons of rain. Those in its path had to decide: to evacuate or stay. Those sheltering in place were battered by wind and rain, those who evacuated, although in a place of safety, were left to wonder about the damage to their homes and livelihoods. How soon would they be able to return?
