Listen: Tar River, Ed Crump and Todd Ant discussed on News, Traffic and Weather
"Four hour. News station. From ABC news. I'm Todd ant. Still moving at a crawl at five miles an hour. Tropical storm Florence is. Now, creeping inland. Twenty five miles west of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The storm being blamed for at least five deaths sixty mile an hour winds causing heavy damage, and rains and storms. Surger hitting some areas with coastal freshwater flooding, Ed Crump from our affiliate station in Wilmington, North Carolina reports from Greenville of the tar river amazing to be this far from the coast and for that storm to be able to push water so far up here. It is. Now storm surge combined with the rain because we've had a significant amount of rain since the storm started yesterday when the storm I started coming in. It was all storm surge that we saw down there. There was very little rain. But there's obviously been a lot in the last twenty four hours. The intense rain expected to cause major river flooding into early next week Kevin Jacobs with our affiliate station. W P D E reports. Four to six foot storm surge is certainly on track. Four today this."
