So far 3.4 million chickens and turkeys, and 5,500 hogs are dead in North Carolina from Hurricane Florence wind and floods. The numbers are expected to increase this week. The livestock death toll doubles that of Hurricane Matthew in 2016.
Hurricane Florence canceled many Triangle events, including rapper J. Cole’s inaugural Dreamville Festival. Organizers of Wide Open Bluegrass in Raleigh and Art of Cool in Durham, both happening Sept. 28-29, hope for clear skies.
