Hurricane Florence makes landfall in North Carolina, with plenty of destruction and suffering ahead

Source: CNN

Hurricane Florence has made landfall in North Carolina, but its crawling pace and overwhelming storm surges are setting up hours and hours of destruction and human suffering -- with dozens desperately awaiting rescue in one flooded city alone.

The Category 1 hurricane, with punishing winds and dumping 3 inches of rain an hour, made landfall at 7:15 a.m. ET near Wrightsville Beach, just east of Wilmington.

Florence's center may linger for another whole day along coastal North and South Carolina -- punishing homes with crushing winds and floods and endangering those who've stayed behind.

In the besieged North Carolina city of New Bern, rescuers by midmorning Friday had plucked more than 200 people from rising waters, but about 150 more had to wait as conditions worsened and a storm surge reached 10 feet, officials said.

1. They should have evacuated.

The south elected an executive who would tear everything up. Now, they expect the government to rescue them?

Tell me again, how hating HRC and minorities pays off? The fema $ went toward separating brown children from their parents. None left to rescue fools who thought they could ignore or stop a hurricane.

2. There is an army of rescuers up there.

 

Not sure what you are talking about. FEMA doesn't do high water rescues.

4. It's fine to order an evacuation and have police drive up and down streets announcing it

Some people are unable to do so. You can't call them all fools.

3. Pat Robertson prays in Jesus' name to command Hurricane Florence go out to sea.

Pat Robertson prays in Jesus' name to command Hurricane Florence go out to sea.

It did not.

So how much faith do the 700 Club folks truly have in Jesus?

They have been collecting money all along for Florence.
