On September 14, Hurricane Florence made land fall on the North Carolina coastline.After battering the coastline for days prior to landfall, the hurricane slowed down.Much like Hurricane Harvey over southeast Texas in 2017.Over the next 4 days, Hurricane Florence dumped as much as 40 inches of rain over eastern North Carolina as it moved inland.On September 17thit was reported that 34 of the 100 counties in the state had catastrophic flooding and the storm was not over yet.As rivers continued to rise, that’s when our first responders went to work.Police, Fire, EMS, and our 911 telecommunicators responded the worst natural disaster our state has experienced.Many of those helping would lose their own property and in some cases not knowing the status of their own family members. Many of these employees worked for days, unable to return home and unable to communicate with family or knowing whether they had a home left to go back to. As the waters begin to recede, the needs for these families are becoming greater every day. 911 Telecommunicators from the entire North Carolina coastline need our help.
