I saw on facebook that the Oak Island pier collapsed. Also saw that two people are presumed dead in Bladen County when they couldn't escape their car in flood waters. So dangerous to drive in this stuff and Bladen Co is very swampy and low lying anyway.

Yep... the storm she has arrived here in St James, the trees across the street are bending straight sideways, must be 60 - 70 mph winds but actually not much rain as of yet.... the Polly Gully bridge is and has been covered in a couple feet of water since early this afternoon and a tree down over it on one end.... the town of Southport issued a curfew from 5pm til 8am.... so we'll see what happens in the morning.

10:15 p.m. in the Ogden area and the wind has been blowing steadily for several hours. I'd estimate 40+ miles with higher gusts. I looked out the upstairs window 30 minutes ago and saw several light flashes in the distance. I assume they were transformers but am not certain. We haven't lost power though the backside of Matthew has had much stronger winds tonight than earlier today. Hopefully the winds will be over soon. Everyone stay safe.

We just drove back home from Charlotte to RiverSea Plantation. Lots of standing, and some running, water around Whiteville and Lumberton. No power in most of the areas off of Hwy 74. One section of Hwy 74 down to a single lane due to flooding (and no warning as you approach). The first working traffic light we saw was at the intersection of 211 and 17. Everything west of that was without power for at least 45 miles.

About 8:30 Saturday night we lost power do some problem between Duke Power and Brunswick Electric.

Power returned Sunday around 3:30 PM.

It covered from Calabash to at least Shallotte. Probably more.

That's interesting. We are in RiverSea Plantation, a lot closer to 17 than SJP. Our power went down at 8:21PM Saturday but returned at 11:11. Power here is from Brunswick Electric. We must be on a different grid or at least substation than SJP.
