North Carolina TV station evacuates because of rising water


Ballance called the rainfall "biblical", saying he's gotten reports from friends that his downtown seafood restaurant was flooded, just like the rest of the small city's historic downtown, and he's anxious about the hundreds of people who needed to be rescued overnight in the city.

The City of New Bern said in a tweet before dawn Friday that there were about 150 people who still needed swift-water rescue.

Organizer Clyde Cain told CNN the Cajun Navy was staged in New Bern and had received more than 500 calls for assistance. The water never made it to his home.

A New Bern news station had to leave their premises after they say flood waters are rising inside. "We were able to evacuate quite a few; some did not go", he said. When Hurricane Florence started battering eastern North Carolina with record rainfall, the Neuse and Trent rivers began to swell - and combined with high tide, made for risky flooding and dramatic rescues. "You don't want to put someone in a bucket and send them high into the air to mess with power lines in 70 miles per hour winds".

However, the film showed only Mr Weinstein at the meeting, telling staff not to interrupt before closing and locking the door. Would you like to do it some more?" She replies: "A little bit... a little high, that's a little high, that's a little high".

Amber Parker, a spokeswoman for Craven County, where New Bern is located, told CNN early Friday morning the county had already logged more than 100 service calls from residents trapped on their roofs or in their cars. "If you've ever doubted the destructiveness of a hurricane, what's happening here will make you a believer".

Employees at New Bern's WCTI-TV NewsChannel 12 had to abandon their studio for the "first time in history", the station posted Thursday night on Facebook. A spokesperson for the ABC affiliate said that roads around the building were flooding.

The eerie final moments of the station's footage show Cox announcing that a sister station in Myrtle Beach would take over the coverage before walking out of the frame, leaving just the radar loop of Florence playing in the background. "Little rough but we're all out", a tweet said.
