Shovels, Salt, Generators In High Demand

It's not just the bread aisles seeing action from Eastern Carolina residents -- hardware stores are as well.

The Lowe's in Washington had its share of customers Monday looking to get their hands on items like generators and salt.

In fact -- store management says they had to put an emergency order in with stores up north for salt. They are hoping to get that in by Wednesday.

As for snow shovels -- regular-sized were all the store had on hand. Officials say it's certainly been a busy one in the run-up to Tuesday night.

We're told space heaters have been a hot commodity as well.
