Hurricane Irene Brings Back Bad Memories For Some

As Hurricane Irene gets closer and closer to our coast some folks in Princeville, Edgecombe County can't help but get nervous.

Many remember what happened all too well in Princeville after Hurricane Floyd back in 1999....basically the entire town was underwater.

Many were forced to leave the area. Within the past few years some have moved back and buildings have been rebuilt. But with the threat of Irene some people say it brings back memories.

Town officials met Wednesday to set up a contingency plan just in case Hurricane Irene does cause problems.
