    Rising Cape Fear River overtops cooling lake at Duke Energy's Sutton Plant

    CHARLOTTE, N.C., Sept. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The rising Cape Fear River is overtopping the cooling lake at the L.V. Sutton Plant in Wilmington, N.C. Aerial photographs taken this morning of the cooling lake showed some erosion on the interior slope of the berm, a surface that is protected by a layer of compacted soil and cement. Given the historic level of flooding on the Cape Fear River, there is little to no chance that lake water will contribute to a measurable change in water levels in the area.

    Flooding expected to worsen in Carolinas after Florence's departure

    Flooding from rain-swollen rivers was expected to worsen across the Carolinas on Thursday and the next couple of days in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence, which killed 36 people in three states, forecasters said.

"People in flood prone areas or near waterways need to remain alert as rivers crest and stay above their banks in coming days," North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper said in a written statement.
