HURRICANE SANDY AFTERMATH 347

At this writing, Florence was a tropical depression headed toward the Northeast with heavy rains. The storm leaves behind a wide swath of destruction in North Carolina.

New Bern, North Carolina, seems to have taken a particularly tough beating from the storm. Located at the far end of the exposed Neuse River, the town was open to winds that howled down a long river fetch, creating flooding and large waves that ripped apart floating docks, sunk boats and flooded many parts of the city.

This video from Channel 4 News shows the downtown docks during the height of the storm this weekend.
