Aerial tour of Eastern NC flooding

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – WNCT covers flooding around the East from the ground, and now, from the air.

Al Williford, a local pilot of Wash House, gives an aerial view of Eastern North Carolina, showing the flooding that’s affected many.

While flying above Washington, Belhaven, Swanquarter, and Ocracoke, damage is seen everywhere.

Al said much of the flooding is still visible from the air.
“I didn’t think it was gonna be this bad,” said Williford. “It’s kinda surprising to see it’s still out there.”

Even at 15 hundred feet, many fields look like swamps. Docks seem to have submerged under water, while many neighborhoods, streets, and grasslands are completely saturated.
