As fresh memories of hurricanes Dorian and Florence continue to linger, we can't forget the history of hurricanes that have already come.
We've been talking a lot about hurricanes Dorian and Florence, but 20 years ago the big story was Hurricane Floyd.
State officials now say the damage in North Carolina from Hurricane Florence has approached $17 million, an increase from a previous estimate.
Hurricane Florence brought life-threatening storm surge, catastrophic flash-flooding, historic river flooding, strong winds and several tornadoes to North Carolina.
There have been reports of flooding all around the Cape Fear, including in Pender County.
Hurricane Matthew pummeled eastern North Carolina with winds and rain a year ago this weekend.
American Rivers says pollution from pig and chicken farms is the main threat in the Neuse and Cape Fear rivers.
Many homeowners in historic Princeville, North Carolina, could be eligible for the federal government to buy their flood-damaged properties so they can move, but the decision isn't entirely up to them.
On September 16, 1999, Hurricane Floyd made landfall at Cape Fear as a very strong category 2 storm. At its peak in the Atlantic, Floyd was among the largest category 4 storms on record. Even as it came ashore it was almost twice the size of a normal hurricane.
