This is probably going to be the last that I talk about hurricane Matthew for a while. I just wanted to mention a couple more things about it. The storm is long-gone. However, some standing water still lingers in the area. I think the actual water table rose in many locations, and it takes a while for it to go down. There is still some flooding on our local rivers. The Blackwater river at Franklin was down to 15.3ft. This is moderate and almost to minor levels. Also the Cashie river near Windsor, NC was down to moderate levels today. …
Flooding is still a concern due to Tides and rising rivers.
Matthew hit our area hard while moving south of Hatteras. It will move farther out to sea today.
Matthew is moving away, but will continue to impact us through the day.
