On September 14th and 15th, our county, our region, and our state experienced a weather situation unlike no other – Hurricane Florence. As you are aware, countless homes and businesses sustained severe damage and some were even destroyed. Roads have been washed away. And, sadly, lives have been lost. The impact of Hurricane Florence can be found far and wide, and the recovery efforts will last into the coming months, and for some, possibly years. A storm of this magnitude will leave a lasting imprint on us and our community.
All of us have a story about Hurricane Florence – how it has impacted our lives. To help capture these stories, throughout the month of October we will post NHCS Storm Stories – a video blog of NHCS employees and students sharing their stories about Hurricane Florence.
The first two videos are included below – Dr. Maggie Rollison – Principal of Trask Middle School shares her account of overseeing Trask as an evacuation shelter during the height of the storm – and Lauren Gray – a WECHS teacher – shares the loss of her family’s home to flooding and how they are rebuilding.
