[QUOTE=drivernumber.
I also worked with several people who today have a cough from being in the city from that day.
I hate to see this stuff again it just makes me mad again.[/QUOTE]

Truly sorry to hear about your friends, just last week we had a discussion in class about how the EPA handled the cleanup. Btw I remove what they claim wasn't there. They ignored peoples safety during the clean up and now survivors are paying the price.

Hurricane Florence is going to hit the coast of NC within the next couple of days. It's a big storm with a lot of potential rainfall and a dangerous storm surge. I've already got sandbags filled and the Monte will go up on jackstands tomorrow.

Thanks for the prayers guys. We are about as prepared as we can be. I'd be lucky to find even scotch tape around here right now lol.

The latest forecast has it turning further west, away from my area a bit more. Don't get me wrong, we still are in a hurricane warning, but hopefully nothing catastrophic occurs here. The biggest concern I have is the winds from the storm pushing water from the sound over the land, which is still a very real possibility, especially paired with torrential rain. The Wilmington - Morehead City areas look like they're going to get hit head on though... I sure would have evacuated if I lived there, and I hope everybody that lives down there has evacuated...

Went to a closed airstrip with my engine builder yesterday for my first time down a dragstrip as a passenger in his 69 Chevelle 440 cid small block 705 hp 770 lbs a 1/4 mile car.We managed 2 wheelies and ran 6 seconds at 98 in the 1/8 mile on a time slip and our fastest pass went I un recorded. Got some pics of some of the Montes and a few other oddballs like the high boy with the 427 sitting between the guys legs , reminded me of a sprint car. If you look hard at the pink Monte you'll notice the quarter panel is buckled because on body twist was same on other side.Had a great first experience.

Hey all, our area has been mostly spared from the hurricane, but many places closer to the rivers and creeks have been flooded out for a while now. Nothing like what is being seen in New Bern & Wilmington though. Be blessed my Monte brethren.

Glad you're ok nitehawkjcb. We had a lot of flooding, roads completely washed out, and a few tornados Monday, luckily no local injuries. Right now there is still 41 roads closed in my county due to damage/washouts from Monday's storms. At least here in the rolling hills of the Piedmont region water drains away quickly. Still, the people down east in NC really do have it bad.Coastal Carolina is so low and flat it takes forever for flooding to recede.
