GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Hurricane Matthew’s wrath may be over but eastern North Carolina is still dealing with the devastation caused by the storm.
From the ground to the sky, WNCT 9 On Your Side is working to show eastern Carolina all the damage left behind from Hurricane Matthew.
9 On Your Side took to the sky for aerial views of the flooding both in Pitt and Beaufort counties.
The damage left behind showed many neighborhoods and roadways still under water. Because of the conditions, many residents may not get home for days.
High above the Town Common, you can see just how fast the river is flowing.
The Tar River has already flooded many roads and areas out by the airport. At the GUC power plant, people are going over by helicopter to bring workers food and water.
There are already some flooded homes in Beaufort County. A local church is flooded on all sides.
And the flooding is expected to get worse.
Fortunately, 9 On Your Side didn’t spot anyone stranded on top of their homes.
Many people were out and about taking pictures at the Town Common and there were a lot of people near their homes in boats.
