Nearly 750,000 turkeys were lost to flooding in Duplin Co. alone as well as 100,000 hogs, over 23,000 on this poultry farm in Wallace. The owner, Alan Reynor, lost at least $85,000 plus cleanup costs. He also lost 2,500 hogs and the corn crop. A good portion of the turkeys were incinerated (shown here), but the balance will be buried. Photo by DAVE GATLEY/ FEMA News Photo
