"fear river" Discussed on Science Friday
"News, local science stories of national significance hurricane Florence, and it's end it's ather, man. Aftermath brought to widespread flooding to the Carolinas in beyond, you know, all about that and adding to the heartbreak of all at water was the potential release of wastes a flood of coal. Ash into the Cape fear river was the fear and the coal ash isn't quite like the harmless white ash from your charcoal grill, it contains elevated levels of arsenic and other heavy metals. Any needs to be contained joining me now to talk about this is Jason Bruin. He's a data reporter at UNC. He stationed in Durham, North Carolina, welcome to the program. IRA nice be with you. Hey, nice to have you so tells what is coal. Ash? Where is it? What is the story about. Well, you set it at the top. It's not like the charcoal assets you might find in your grill, but in fact, contains quite toxic, heavy metals, including arsenic, and you know, of course we need to burn coal to create electricity. That's one of the great advances over the past, maybe half century or so, but we didn't realize that it came with this quite dangerous products. And so now we're dealing with that now. So what happened in this case. So we don't know exactly what happened in Cape fear yet in on a molecular level, but we do know is that flood waters from hurricane Florence? Basically barraged these two holding ponds that hold back at and then also sort of retaining pawn that's next to it to protect the ash base in from the Cape fear river with all these heavy floodwaters that we got. There was a breach I into that first berm that holds back sort of the cooling water, and then later into the second berm that holds back the waters for the coal ash pond. And so with all that water running in from the Cape fear river, you had all the waters mixing together. And then of course exiting out the bottom end. And obviously obviously the fear there is that coal ash then mixed with the lake water and then mixed alternately with the river water downstream. So so do we have any evidence that the ash did get released into the river. So what we know is that Duke Energy has done its tests and has said that it tests are conclusive that there were not elevated levels of arsenic in the water. Now, of course, environmentalists like with the Waterkeeper alliance have been out on the water and they say that they have seen ash in the water now actually went out with them on on Saturday, and I was in a in a little boat with them on the river and also saw what to my eye looks to be like coal, ash. They've taken water samples. They meaning the the Waterkeeper they've taken water samples, but they're still waiting on those results. Don't have those back yet. And of course also were still waiting for state regulators who also took samples again, don't have those results back yet though, could have affected any other river, this coal ash. Well, it's interesting that you should ask that because just a few literally about hour and a half ago, we got word from the Waterkeeper alliance that in fact, there are elevated levels of arsenic in a different river in the news river. That's also here North Carolina and near a little town of gold's, bro. So that is near a different Duke Energy plant and the similar situation. Duke Energy said that it's tests were conclusive that there were not elevated levels of arsenic, but now we do have water test back from the Waterkeeper alliance where they say that. In fact, there are elevated levels of arsenic, in fact, eighteen times what is allowable. Now, there's some discussion about where tests where taken, where tests were, you know what labs they were studied at. Of course, Duke is throwing water while pardon the pun is is saying that the that the tests from the Waterkeeper a biased. Of course, the Waterkeeper it says, the test from Duke are biased here. Again, even though we do have tests from the from. Environmentalists we don't have test yet back from a state regulators through the department of environmental quality still waiting on those. Of course, if they were the Duke would might be liable for that action there and we'll keep watching to potentially could be. Yeah, Jason. Thanks very much avenue. You're welcome.

"Nearly three thousand three thousand people did not die. Tweeted Trump who praised his response to the disaster in Puerto Rico, where sixty thousand homes still don't have roofs. Fast forward to hurricane Florence in North Carolina. There Trump surveyed the damage and said to a man who had lost his home, at least you got a nice boat out of the deal. A yacht had washed ashore on the storm surge and slammed into the man's house. Is this your boat or did it become your boat dramas? The man who said it wasn't his well. Maybe it is now said Trump adding that he'd have someone check on that with twenty five people dead from the storm in North Carolina, but Trump went on and on about that boat even asking about it days later this boat wiped out or not as Trump adding, wouldn't want to cross the ocean in it. This boat Trump said to reporters, I don't know what happened, but this boat just came here and the, you know who's boat it is they don't know who's voted is even in the midst of mass destruction. The man appreciates good yacht. The president also inquired about lake Norman. Because he has a golf club there. Before the hurricane, there were some nine million hogs in North Carolina producing ten billion gallons of waste each year. This effluence was stored in open air lagoons more than three thousand lagoons that were fed bacteria to turn the waste into fertilizer in the flooding that followed hurricane Florence, those waste lagoons overflowed and that waste and fertiliser began to spread the carcasses of nearly three and a half million chickens and turkeys and tens of thousands of other animals and tens of thousands of other animals are also rotting in those floodwaters which continue to threaten the state today. Aside from the obvious health risks for humans, the fertilizer contamination will prompt the growth of algae of the sword that has threatened for two beaches, this summer in a red tide public health officials, call it a toxic soup there in North Carolina. But that's just the beginning. The southern energy giant Duke Energy had been storing, toxic coal, ash in pits that were also breached by flooding from Florence that too, as spread across the water that's reportedly spread in eastern North Carolina. Duke Energy says the ash did not make it to the Cape fear river, but environmentalists dispute that while we all wait the official test results from the state Duke had been in the process of transferring that coal ash from those open pits to Lyme pit landfills, where the toxic material could be more safely stored complying with a regulation that Duke Energy had resisted for years, four years ago, Duke Energy allowed thirty nine thousand tons of coal ash to spill into the Dan river and eventually pleaded guilty to criminal negligence. Outside Wilmington, North Carolina, a nuclear power plant reported an unusual event after floodwaters had damaged that facility. The reactors were in what a Nuclear Regulatory Commission spokesman called a hot standby mode, three shutdown, adding the plant is safe and stable, and that floodwaters had not entered the facility and therefore did not threaten important equipment. So there's that politicians in North Carolina have not only ignored the news of climate change. They passed a law banning policies based on that science, they made it illegal for state officials to do anything based on the science of climate chains ordering them to use, only records from the past. It's as if they believe there's no such thing as climate change there in North Carolina with that nice long shoreline. And science is being ignored by North Carolina's Republican lawmakers, including the news. The North Carolina coast line is among one of the most vulnerable in the country to rising sea levels. They will then no doubt be surprised when they see the rising insurance bills and the falling property values..

"By floodwaters and spilled into the Cape fear river. Duke Energy says its initial testing conducted by its in house lab indicate that the discharge into the Cape fear river quote shows a slight increase in contamination, but well, below permited regulatory limits with little to no impact on river water. Quality? Well, if do energy own internal study says everything's fine. Why worry? North Carolina environmental groups recorded gray sludge on the riverbanks and in the water and say, they're awaiting results of independent testing. Moreover, heavy metals, toxins, mercury, arsenic, all kinds of things were found in the Cape fear river downstream from this coal, ash pit. The parts per million were some three times higher than the water tested upstream of the coal ash pit into line. The Trump administration rolled back Obama era, coal, ash waste rules that would have limited the risk of these predictable spills. Although scientists say that climate change intensified, Florence is affect national TV news outlets failed to incorporate that into their hurricane coverage. According to a media matters analysis, ABC news did not mention climate at all during its Florence coverage. CBS PBS CNN and MSNBC did at times connect Florence's. Extremes with climate change, but did so less than they did during their coverage of hurricane Harvey. Last year, I have no idea what it's going to take at this point. Meanwhile, in Washington, the Trump administration pipeline and hazardous materials, Safety Administration on Monday rolled back Obama era safety rules designed to prevent explosions of trains that whole oil, the rules would have required trains carrying oil and other flammable materials to install special breaks and other safety features. But the administration said, a new analysis found the cost of the rule to the industry outweighed the benefits making America. Great. Again, I'm sorry, I'm making oil trains explode. Again, Republicans are desperately trying to ram through confirmation of DC circuit court of appeals. Judge, Brad Kavanagh, Donald Trump's scandal plagued anti environment nominee to the US supreme court before voters have their say in the crucial November midterm elections, but at stake is more than just control of congress as. It's legal reporter, Marc Joseph stern explained on a recent Brad cast. The court is currently divided for two four, and in a new session that begins on October. I is a new case that is very important to the logging mining and drilling industries. The conservative plainly want to use to sort of hobble the Environmental Protection Agency by interpreting the Endangered Species Act in a really cramped and limited way. And I think the Republican party wants their fifth man on the bench, the cast the tiebreaking vote and deliver conservative victories and all of those cases, good news. A federal appeals court has ordered the Environmental Protection Agency to immediately and force an Obama era, chemical plants safety rule that the Trump administration had tried to delay. The risk management program rule was put in place by the Obama administration after the deadly west, Texas, fertilizer explosion in two thousand thirteen men. We are so lucky that the courts are at least for now still holding the line. And finally, Cleveland, Ohio has become the latest major city in the United States to commit to one hundred percent renewable electricity by twenty fifty. They joined more than eighty US cities that have committed to get all of their electricity from renewable. Sources in Ohio that might be easier said than done, but it's a start for much more on all of.

Road conditions are constantly changing, and the state says, it's still not safe for residents to return to Wilmington. In South Carolina officials are watching four rivers and expecting them to crest east of interstate ninety five this weekend into early next week. So a lot of challenges remaining in the region.

"Three people have been killed in the storm so far the majority in North Carolina while now tonight the head of FEMA is warning that the next forty eight hours are critical, particularly in Fayetteville, North Carolina, where the Cape fear river is rising fast. Cape fear rivers expected to crest overnight tonight or early tomorrow officials are estimating there. There may be as many as twelve thousand people in harm's way that river in particular heads toward its peak flood stage. The Cape fear river has quadrupled in size in the last two days. It's now over sixty feet deep and counting, and of course all of that water needs to go somewhere. It can't be held by its banks when it's down when it's up to sixty feet deep. In this case, what's happening with Cape fear rivers. That some of the water that's beyond its banks now causing spontaneous new rivers to spring up. This is what happened in Pender county, North Carolina. And I know this looks like river looks can be deceiving though that nice straight deep river. You see there is actually interstate forty just completely submerged. Same thing is happening along a sixty mile stretch of interstate ninety five. I ninety five is the old the way up and down the east coast artery runs through the heart of the Carolinas officials. Say there are as many as sixteen rivers at major flood levels tonight. President Trump is expected to visit the storm zone spec to visit North Carolina. Tomorrow we shall see as FEMA saying the next forty eight hours are critical. We are thinking and praying for everybody in the Carolinas tonight. Watch this space. I want to say, thanks again to our guest tonight.

And not for nothing. Secretary Clinton also gave us a warning slash prediction that she believes that right after the upcoming midterm elections, she thinks President Trump will start wholesale firing people in the White House and in his administration.

"Anything in the flooding will be washed industry and and let will create what what are the consequences? So there's ten million hogs and North Carolina each. Of I ninety five east of interstate ninety five. So that's about the eastern third of the state. That's the same number of people that we have in North Carolina, but he's much more ways that humans much of that waste is going to be introduced into waterways that flows through communities downstream. So as rivers come up, they thought everything. They don't just flip the farms, homes, churches, schools, they flood entire communities and those floodwaters are going to carry some some terrible, nasty things that you find all untreated families and people are going to suffer because but the the same time, the Environmental Protection Agency has relaxed. Some of the restrictions. If if I might that they Trump administration has moved to take down some of the federal regulations on both that those those coal ash ponds and waste lagoons what what responsibility will these companies have to bear for what's happening to the environment? Well, you're right there have been efforts at the federal. Oh, to to reduce environmental regulations, and it's kind of the wild west and North Carolina's far as poultry goes, we're seeing new barnesville everyday because they're so few regulations that actually control. And I think this is going to be an epic disaster and and it is probably going to be a real. I open before North Carolina. And what kind of risk these facilities post of the people all over the state. And is it any way to tie do mitigate some of it now? Is there any way to contain any of this flow of waste into the water systems? At this point, there is absolutely nothing that anyone can do. There is no way to stop the disaster that's unfolding right now. Carolina. The waste is already there. The flood waters are coming up and the communities are already downstream. So there's nothing we can do this time. We can only hope to take action in the future that prevents this from happening again. Right. They're just bearing this. Appreciate speaking with you.

That's still continuing with the rivers still rising. Gohmert has joins us. Now, what stood out to you today? Moco. Yeah, it is only going to get more dangerous. We flew over the area south of Raleigh today and the expense of it. I was about a mile west of where we flew over today a little town called Wallace, North Carolina. Today we were about a mile and a half east of there. It's all water. It's the massive lake. I forty itself this major freeway. That cuts through the state is now part of it, at least a major lake.

"There were sunny skies over parts of North Carolina today. That unfortunately does not mean the danger is quite over, although Florence has now been downgraded to a tropical depression. It has caused extreme plugging at least eighteen people have died. Rivers have overflowed and entire cities are left, partly submerged. Wilmington is one of those cities right now. It is almost completely cut off from the rest of North Carolina. Brett Neely is a firefighter from Pennsylvania is a member of the volunteer rescue group known as the Cajun navy. We reach Mr. Neely in Wilmington earlier today. Breath is the Cajun navy out in force in Wilmington today are yeah. Just doing some secondary of neighborhoods that were affected where rescue place on going through verifying everything. It was up-to-date and nobody else needs assistance in those areas we have water was been has been donated everything from toiletries to clothing, everything that they need to start the recovery process. Essentially, Wilmington is an island is not supposed to be Nyland supposed to be connected by roads, and yet you're surrounded the river on one side, the ocean on the other. You're pretty well cut off in the city, aren't you? Yes, yes. Roads are a lot of roads are impassable due to flooding damage with trees, all that kind of stuff. So if it pretty much pretty much isolated from the outside, not just isolated, but what about power? What do you what does their electric city electrically starting to come on some parts, but a majority of Wilmington is still out of power that we're aware of. So it'll be it'll be timely process win about food and other supplies, foods, shortage of. No power. Nothing's cold. Everything then really dry food that we've been handing out onto the community. Everything from 'em are ease to soups. I have seen a few people bring us food hot food that's been catered to us cook with propane. So there's there's the ability to cook minor food that you just have to heat up water for any way to get supplies in other votes. Are there anything being ferried across the deeds of the water? There had been some routes that can open up from time to time. It just depends on how the shifts and Wegner starts raining again or not. We have an airdrop scheduled to becoming for supplies that should be here. And then the Cajun navy also has a supply convoy coming out of Louisiana on the way here as well. How is that getting there by truck? So hopefully we'll be able to get it into us. How will they get there? They're like certain times. You can see other roads will be opened. It just depends on if we get a bunch of rain. All right, speaking of rain, it's it's not raining now is it has been sunny skies for parts of Carroll. I every day it's not over. Is it? They're? They're expecting more rain. Yes, yes. And that's the problem that rain has nowhere to go. So we're just kinda down right now doing some maintenance and expecting for the worst for the best. But the the river, as we were saying that you got the ocean on one side. You've got Cape fear river on the other, but the the river hasn't crested yet has it no the river supposed to Christ sometime this afternoon or first thing tomorrow. It's just it's a waiting game to see. So could things get worse before they get better. It could possibly in some areas?.

"Three sixty podcasts people went up. It is left, go and sins and you know our NFL podcast. Simpson left go, but now there's a show. Oh, you gotta look at us to. Yes, it is going to be on the Biard app every Wednesday at eight. It's going to be fun. It's going to be crazy. Getting everyone. I'm Anderson Cooper in Wilmington, North Carolina, where for last twenty four hours. The story has been rain and rain and more rain. In fact, we've seen some of the probably the heaviest of band of rain just in the last ten minutes or so hitting this area down by the Cape fear river. There are five people have died so far in this storm five people, five lives lost hundreds of people have had to be rescued from their homes. Some here in Wilmington others in new Bern and elsewhere. There have been rescues going on last night throughout today, and no doubt we'll continue tonight. We're gonna be talking to some rescuers in the next hour as well as some people who have been rescued and the stories they tell are harrowing of water coming into their homes of sending their children up into the attic for what they thought was. To save their lives. And then finally being rescued when all hope seemed to be law. So there's a lot to tell you about what is happening on the ground here. The storm is a now a tropical storm, but if you think that means it is over for people here, this rain tells you what the real story is. There is still concern about storm surge in areas still concerned about how much rain is going to continue to come down throughout the night into tomorrow. There are a lot of different areas that are just getting pummeled and pounded and have been a all day long. I drove around Wilmington earlier just to kind of get a sense of how the city is there is the electricity is out as you know, probably North Carolina. There's more than three hundred thousand people at this point without electricity. South Carolina has tens of thousands of people without electricity. We don't have exact numbers yet, but those numbers are only likely to increase in all throughout Wilmington. There are huge. Enormous old, beautiful trees that are on the ground. It is very difficult to get anywhere driving around roads or blocks by down trees. They haven't had time obviously to to even deal with those trees. They're most concerned, obviously, the biggest priorities, anybody who's in an emergency situation. And as we said, we're going to talk to the fire chief. We're gonna talk to the mayor and to really give you a sense of what has been happening, North Carolina over the last twenty four hours this storm is unlike really any that I've covered before. We've certainly seen bigger storms in terms of the the wind speed of the category of storms, but just for for a rain event for water events. This is just a slow moving slug of the storm. That is just seems to be stuck and it's just pounding this state a South Carolina as well. I want to go over to Chris Cuomo who is in north Myrtle Beach in South Carolina, Chris, how're things there..

"And with nearly two million people under evacuation orders. Some twelve thousand are already packed into storm shelters. ABC's Amy Rohbock is in Wilmington out on the marina. What's it like there now, Amy aid us you. Yes. So we're getting rain. We're getting some wind with the wind gusts fear. Nothing too severe yet, but all eyes are on the marina. Here behind me. We have the. Cape fear river, and there have been a lot of concerns that this river will flood this downtown area of Wilmington at the historic area. And so many people have boarded up with sandbags. And frankly, a lot of people have left town and that is certainly a good thing. We were walking around downtown all day today as the storm ban started to come in and it truly was a ghost town. This is normally a bustling area with a lot of residents. We've certainly been hearing about this storm for some time and many residents took heed, and now we're seeing this come in and it's never been truly about the wind speed. Now that we're at a category. One hurricane, a lot of people are pointing that out. It's the rain and the water that were worried about. We know that we're at high tide right now, but there's another high tide coming at noon, and that's where a lot of people are concerned. The real flooding is gonna take place, so we're going to be keeping a close eye on everything happening here along the Cape fear river. And of course further on the coast about twenty minutes from the coast here at Bloomington Chatto. Absolutely. And I'm impressed. That you're staying healthy as well as staying safe, Amy. But I know you've been watching people prep for this storm for days. Now. That's right. And people really have been heating, the warnings. There are so many people. In fact, seven thousand people at a local hospital who are in critical need of power. They can't have the power go out at some of these hospitals because they're on life support. They need the electricity to stay alive. And so there are workers here ready to go to pump that water out to keep the power on with those generators with a lot of gasoline. At the ready in case power goes out, they're expecting that possibly happen. In fact, we just saw power flicker here right now, and I don't know if you could see that. Yes, the power just went out right next to me. So this is the concern, the rolling powder at power outages for people who depend on power to stay alive and some of those hospitals. So so many people at work here at the ready trying to make sure that people stay say they stay alive during the storm as it will be a long one here the next several hours. Some people are saying days ABC here in Wilmington. All right. Stay safe..

"We've seen in the areas that we've driven through Anderson for the most part areas where the power is still on in many places that that's a good sign of the longer that can stay up and functioning obviously that the better for people who have chosen, not to evacuate. But emergency officials tell us that for the most part in these areas from Jacksonville, north to morehead city along the coastline, they feel like the majority of the people have evacuated from these areas. They're still a good number of people who have chosen to stay back. But right now, you know, we're in between one of these bands of of heavy rains and winds of, but they're starting to get smaller and smaller that the times that they the the amount of time that it goes up between these bands. So clearly assigned. That the the center of the storm approaching and getting much closer Anderson. Yeah, and thank you very much. Stay safe. You and your crew want to go back to Brian Todd and ham stead. North Carolina appears to be getting a little bit worse from when we last talked to to Brian, what's going on there, Brian. Well Anderson it is getting a little worse than rain is certainly picking up and the wind is starting to whip around here. You know, as you know, being in these for so many years when you start to get rained on sideways, you know what's getting serious and it is, you could see this this bad hitting me right now. You know, again the storm surge, right, where we are is really getting to be a problem. This is the intercoastal waterway basically just creeping up this road more so each minute. And as we get the high tide close to midnight, this is going to be worse. I'm really getting hit with a band right here. You know, it's coming off the marshes to Anderson and when the storm surge overwhelms the marshes like they are right to my right, that's a bad sign because this water in a couple of hours is going to have absolutely no place to go. I just checked in with the local emergency management people again about this assisted living facility not far from here down this road. They have one hundred seventy four elderly people in there, but they say it's built to withstand a category four hurricane. They're confident right now that. They can ride it out. But as you know, from last year on that horrible experience after hurricane Irma with those elderly people dying in that assisted living facility, that's something you always keep an eye on in this kind of weather. Obviously, that conditions then were much different was a heat situation. This is driving wind and rain, and this is flooding, but it can be just as devastating. We were also at a nuclear power plant earlier today, the Brunswick nuclear power plant, which has the exact same design as the Fukushima nuclear power plant, which was overwhelmed with these catastrophic meltdowns, seven and a half years ago, and they were they were. We were talking to them about the preparations for this. They said there were putting metal flood barriers around that facility down in Southport, which is just a little bit south of Wilmington, but that they feel that they're far enough inland there four miles inland and they're not. They're not right on the Cape fear river there a couple of miles from the Cape fear river. So they believe that they're not close enough to water for that facility. To be compromised by flooding, and they pick another modifications Anderson. But these are two facilities that we're watching closely tonight. He's based on past experiences with these assisted living facilities and on the other side of the coin with nuclear power facilities. Those are the areas that can be really compromised to devastating effect Anderson. Yeah, Brian, appreciate that. Again with water on the ground is you know a lot of this water is gonna be on the ground for days and days. You heard the mayor here in Wilmington. Just a second ago saying that the the river, the Cape fear river, they don't expect it to crest until Tuesday gives you a sense of the length of time that that folks are going to have to be very aware of of water on the ground and very concerned about moving around..

"It's a slow moving storm. It's gonna come in. It's gonna take on. It's going to move a hundred miles in twenty four hours before we get to the Iowa, all it's going to a heck of a lot of water on us twenty four to forty inches to forty inches forty inches in isolated areas. The vigilant, this is this is a very big storm and it's going to take a while for it to get through to through this area. But when he finally gets through szeswith damages, but we're definitely going to have damage from this store and just in terms of shelters. I know a lot of people have left, but there's there were five shelters here, Wilmington. How's that situation? It's great. We staffed over we've sheltered over four hundred eighty people here. Luckily two hundred and fifty inlands in in Wake County and the staff there, the sheriff's deputies and the and the county personnel are just doing incredible job. And you know, it really speaks to how we implement the best practices and the the preparation we do over the years, but also the experiences that we have down here Anderson and going through these events. So often we're prepared. We're good at what we do, and it's an incredible thing because the community comes together before during and after the store, you really who opened up in fact, you increase capacity at some of the shelters because you were getting so many people last night. Yeah, we did and we we were we're fully staffed at or party to capacity full at one, we have capacity of the four others. But at this point it's really Tom to hunker down. Nobody needs to be out there right now wherever you are stay safe. The first responders are ready to deploy the moment. The score passes just in terms of what will meet. It looks like with twenty thirty forty. Inches of rain in some areas. I mean, this area here, do you expect it to be watering? We expected to be over that boardwalk and we and we also expect the Cape fear river to crest sometime on Tuesday. So we're going to have a tremendous amount of water coming down, not till Tuesday, you think that's that's what it's going to reach his. That's what the -ticipant Chris home is for this for this river right now. So we're gonna. We're gonna have a lot of flooding and a lot of water coming down this river and the the record for the record for this river was back in Floyd in nineteen ninety nine. You expect, it's, it may go higher than that. That's what they're expecting of shoes. I think more than twenty three feet, which is just incredible. And we're looking at possibly twenty five. So it it's definitely going to be. It's going to break that record in terms of other storms that you've experienced in that that that the city is experienced. How does this compare? You know, they're all different Anderson. They all have unique personalities and mother nature's seems to know how to throw a different curve balls whether it's wind or storm surge or or whatever. But this one is bad in all three and so, well, it looks like maybe it's better than we thought we still are prepared for the worst. Matthew was banned just a couple of years ago. We still have a fully recovered from it, but ultimately we always recover from these things, and that's what people need to realize that this storm comes. It goes and win. At least we all unifying we work together to rebuild this community. It's also such a slow moving storm. There. You know, there's a lot of people who've been through hurricanes but not necessarily a storm that is so slow. You could out walk this storm when it comes makes landfall and just, you know, sitting in your home for two or three days, people get antsy they want to to to get out xactly. No, but as far as to a my life, I don't know anybody that has see such a slow moving storm, and this is going to be able to top for literally two old days just in terms of pre-positioning..
