    <-- Eastern NC resident, people around here treat dogs, especially hunting dogs, like absolute shit. Almost every pet in my neighborhood was dumped on the side of the road originally. My neighbor was riding her bike miles from anything and found a box of kittens on the road.

    There's some epic price gouging going on for tree removal.

    Dry, few shingles gone and a tree down on the guest house but it didn't breach. Just ran the generator for 8 hours and it only used 4% of the 500 gallon tank so we're good for a few days but we heard the gas company trucks are out topping off tanks. On the drive home there was a massive convoy of utility trucks driving from Indiana driving into region. Current estimate is Friday. The yard is destroyed, about 40 trees down, house got surrounded by a foot of surge that brought in a ton of debris all the way up the driveway. Massive erosion on the beach and behind the bulkhead. Our rocks are scattered all over the place, my immediate neighbor completely lost their bulkhead (rip $50k). Our pool fence is completely gone. Worst areas are New Bern, Newport, and further south Wilmington. Local Base Commanders have been freed to just act so Camp Lejune and Cherry Point are sending out Marines and sheltering people. My area has had over 300 water rescues. Wilmington is the worst I think, every road in is cut off, and they've had over 500 rescues. Supplies are only able to get in by air. . Things are coming back faster than I thought though, a few gas stations are open and grocery stores are letting people in a few at a time.

    Aasholes are spreading fake news about hurricane damage. Ones a picture of a major pier on Atlantic Beach being destroyed (it's not), another of the Highway 70 Bridge in New Bern being partially destroyed.

    Not like they've got 40,000 Marines based right there (Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point is 15 minutes up the highway from New Bern).

    She's our HOA President and refers to herself as "one L Hilary, the one who didn't lose".

    Well, not going home under at least Monday. 24hr county curfew in effect until Sunday, massive flooding in town and a lot of swift water rescues underway. Only access to my neighborhood (12 miles away) is flooded out, probably lots of trees down between there and home. 2 dead in Wilmington, tree fell on the house. A mother and baby.

    I went to college there in Greenville, Tar River floods like a mofo. Campus and Downtown will absolutely flood, Football Stadium is safe though on College Hill! In my neighborhood 2 hours away (around Morehead City if you're watching Weather Channel) my neighbor reports no power, 80mph gusts, and the storm surge is pushing up the Sound and is flooding our properties. Their house hasn't breached yet but the house is surrounded by water, a little higher and the waves will start hitting the houses full force.

    Made it safely to Raleigh, barely any traffic once we got by the Marine base (morons opened the schools then early dismissed the EXACT time my County started evacuating through that County, flooded the evacuation route with buses). Staying with a friend tonight then going to a hotel tomorrow. Raleigh isn't the best option but better to have issues here than where the house is. We live in the middle of nowhere on a MAJOR body of water, house is solid concrete but if we have a breach we're screwed since it could be days before we're reached (one road in through a forest).

    Ugh, finding a pet friendly AND accessible hotel is a bitch.
