The wind was blowing in sheets today as I tried to get from the School of Government back to join a conference call in Manning Hall. I stayed inside and called in by cell.
The folks down in the Delco-Riegelwood area near Whiteville, NC weren’t lucky enough to be inside a nice stone and brick building. The trailerparks and other homes were blown to bits killing as many as 9 people according to the most recent reports.

The Whiteville News Reporter has the story and chilling pictures of the damage.
