A Terrifying, Deadly Storm Struck North Carolina In 1999 And No One Saw It Coming
North Carolina is no stranger to hurricanes; most recently, Hurricane Matthew devastated the state. The Neuse River surpassed its crest and eastern North Carolina towns like Lumberton, Kinston and Fayetteville were practically submerged. After two weeks of rescues, 25 lives were lost. Yet, sadly enough, that isn’t North Carolina’s deadliest hurricane on record. There’s something worse, something more destructive – and its impact is somewhat recent.
