Rocky Mount Remembers Floyd

The city of Rocky Mount remembered Hurricane Floyd Wednesday with an all day informational event about it's history.

Fire trucks were on display outside the Imperial Centre in the city. City officials say they put trucks and other services on display to show residents some of the items they have to combat another Floyd like Hurricane if it came through.

There was also information booths on display as well.

A firefighter we talked to says he was glad many people chose to stay in the city after the powerful storm swept through.

800 people from the Rocky Mount area were relocated after the hurricane came through. Almost 25 percent of the city was flooded.
