Calgary Herald - - NP -

More than 60 peo­ple had to be pulled from a col­laps­ing cin­derblock mo­tel at the height of the storm. Hun­dreds more had to be res­cued else­where from ris­ing wa­ters. Oth­ers could only wait and hope some­one would come for them. “WE ARE COM­ING TO GET YOU,” the city of New Bern tweeted around 2 a.m. “You may need to move up to the sec­ond story, or to your at­tic, but WE ARE COM­ING TO GET YOU.”
