Harlow man caught up in Hurricane Florence in USA

A HARLOW man has described how he has been caught up in the wake of Hurricane Florence on the coast of North Carolina.

Brendan Mills of Church Langley is visiting a friend in Hubert, North Carolina and spoke to the BBC about the weather conditions.

Mr Mills said: “We arrived on September 7th and so had two days of lovely weather.

“We have been following the tornado warnings on our smart phones but it got a lot worse on Thursday night.

The winds have been incredibly strong. My friends have two dogs os it was decided not to evacuate

There is no electricity but we have a back up generator. There is also a curfew in effect.

We went down to Front Street in Wilmington to see if we could help out”.

It has been downgraded from a hurricane to a tropical storm but continues to soak the East Coast area with rain, downing trees and damaging homes.

Five deaths have been linked to the storm and thousands of people have been staying in emergency shelters.

Evacuation warnings were issued for 1.7 million people in the region.
