Strong storms and tornadoes devastated the southeast during Easter Weekend from Louisiana to the Carolinas.
From landfall to almost a week later, we covered many aspects of Hurricane Florence and the historic flooding. Filmed in September 2018, thousands of miles were driven across North Carolina from Wilmington, to Dunn, to Charlotte, and to Greensboro.
Hurricane Nate has made landfall at the mouth of the Mississippi River about an hour or two ago. As Nate moves inland we will start feeling effects in NC and VA on Sunday.

A Tropical Storm Watch has been issued for the coast of North
Carolina from Surf City northward to the North Carolina/Virginia
border, including the Albemarle and Pamlico Sounds.
