    Ed, ref to having their hands full. Emergency Management is about being properly trained and prepared to handle EMERGENCIES.. not just pick up pay checks or play at training seminars until emergencies happen then get busy. THAT'S NOT GOOD MANAGEMENT SKILLS ,that warrants big salaries .

    Did ED read his comments b-4 he submitted it. Sounds like he did some critizing also shame on you Ed. Because people with extra responsibilities get additional pay they should do the additional work without complaining.

    There have been no postings for Currituck at all during this storm. I am not surprised because WITN ignores this portion of Eastern North Carolina! Nothing is ever posted for this portion of their viewing area! Being a hometowm boy having seen the very first tv broadcast that WITN did, and having appeared live in their studios, I am very disappointed!

    the center of the universe, bath, got more than 8 inches, so we got about what washington got...maybe more. i emptied my raingauge, which was overflowing (at 8 inches) and we got much more rain after that.

    It's Emergency MANAGEMENT. The people who are out protecting people are fire/rescue, deputy sheriff's, highway patrolment, and city police. Emergency MANAGEMENT oversees or MANAGES them. They do not do the work themselves. Part of their function is to collect data from those out in the field and inform the public on the locations of hazardous conditions. They did not do so in this instance. I could find no information on locations of road flooding, closed roads, or other hazards such as downed trees blocking roads, other than major highways, on any county, state, or news site. The NC DOT site just had a warning on coastal flooding.

    Thank you for the rainfall totals. Keep up the good work. Only place icould find it.

    To Anonymous...I suspect emergency personel have their hands full meeting medical emergencies and helping others stranded by the flooding. Posting storm totals is not a priority issue. Wise one is correct...the totals are not exhaustive but most folks can look around and see by observation that the best option is to stay home if it is possible. 6 inches of rain or 12 inches of rain really is irrelavent when roads are impassable. Wise one is also correct that sites like these can be better used to post updates and inform viewers about other hazards rather than just posting criticizm of another post.
