DAMAGE, NO POWER, NO AC: How Hot Will It Be? And What About Rain?

There is a little relief for people without power and air conditioning.

WITN Meteorologist Matt Engelbrecht says the highs will be in the 80s the first part of the week, with the lows in the 60s.

""The highs Monday will be in the high 80s. There is a slight chance of rain and isolated thunderstorms Monday afternoon, which isn't welcoming news for people who have roof damage. The chance of precipitation is about 20 percent," Englebrecht said.

Monday night overnight into Tuesday morning, the lows will dip into the high 60s, which will give you and your home a chance to cool down.

Tuesday is not expected to be as warm as Monday, with highs in the mid 80s.

    I really can't say to much tonight. To hear all the distruction of people's livelyhood changed so much in a moment. So many people are griping and complaining never realizing they are sounding like people of Katrina. Our brothers and sisters, our fellow Americans have lost everything. You have the right to complain about not having electricity but is it as bad as the man whose house is underwater. All belonging gone. Be patient. The bucket man is doing his job as fast as he can.

    I lost power for three days, and I have to say that I am very thankful for having it restored today. I am thankful for all the electricians away from families who came here to help us. I am thankful for the hotels that are housing all of these individuals, and I am thankful for the frequent updates from the city of Washington. While I sweated, cursed, and threw out a refrigerator full of food - I am thankful that there are people working hard to help us.

    Everytime I see a bucket truck, I smile.I know these men are working in 95 degree weather so someone can have electricity. Be thankful everyone! Wave at these men. They are working for you. Stop your griping. You are starting to sound like people from Katrina.

    NCDOT refused to come out on Saturday after the storm and did not come in at all on Sunday. We will get it on Monday was the response. Pitt County Schools were closed because of impassable roads, and will be closed tomorrow. If NCDOT had been doing their job the schools may have been open tomorrow.

    I am hearing all about power outages and it's sad but I have yet to see any postings or live media coverage of this area people need help and they are not receiving it. Pamlico Beach is a place as deserving as any other place. We all need help so our Governor needs to do something to get GEMA in here for help ...... 0

    All terrorists have to do to beat us is turn our power off. So you don't have a/c or tv. Lack of food -should have planned better. America is soft. Not like the once fierce hard working people of yesteryear.

      and to those with young children or health issues that require electrical equipment? Should they just "suck it up" as well? Not everyone is upset due to lack of TV or A/C. Some of us have real concerns. When our fire dept doesn't even have power? I suppose if there is a fire - then "oh well - they should have planned better"? Perhaps you should see the broader spectrum.

    I'm on Edgecombe-Martin and we still have no power. It went out Saturday Morning around 8AM and it's now Monday at 2PM. I guess we are last on the list. Thankfully we still have our home can't say much about our food.

    Just like everyone else I wish I had my power back on. I live down river road and it may be another day or two. That being said, I understand people getting frustrated, but the power companies are doing their best to get the power back to everyone as soon as possible. Yesterday I saw an unbelieveable amount of destruction. The areas outside of Aurora around South Creek are completely devestated. They have no homes to go back to. It looks like a war zone. When put into perspective a few days or even a week without power seems relatively minor. It's ok to gripe or complain, just try not to blame other people. The people of Eastern NC are some of the most caring, compassionate and hard working people in the country. We are all in this together. I hope everyone gets power back soon. Just remember to take a deep breath and count to 10 while waiting in lines for gas, food, ect..It helps me anyway.
