Experts are saying that Hurricane Florence will be worse in every way than Hurricane Katrina was back in 2005.  The hurricane has just hit and we now know that at least five people have been killed.  One man was electrocuted, another woman along with her infant died when a tree fell on top of them, and the devastation, disasters, and fatalities are starting to pile up.

The man electrocuted was trying to connect a couple of extension chords outside in the rain.  His family started wondering where he was and found his body a short time later.  The lady and her infant killed were trapped inside their own home by a giant tree.  Firefighters and rescuers worked for hours with heavy lifting airbags and saws but were unfortunately only able to save the dad.  The woman and her infant did not make it.  The dad's condition is unknown at this time.

One woman had a medical emergency and EMS crews could not get to her in time.  She died this morning and another man died when the wind blew him over as he was searching for his hunting dogs.

These people are going through the worst of the worst right now.  Please keep them, their families, and all the emergency crews in your prayers.  God Bless!
