Tornado victims often say the winds that end up destroying their homes sound a lot like a surging freight train.

The disaster in Elizabeth City

To the citizens of Elizabeth City, did you know your mayor was at a bluegrass festival in Pennsylvania while we were all dealing with this? He didn't even care enough to cancel his plans, turn around and come back to lead us. The electrical supervisor Fredette was out of town as was the street supervisor. The City Manager had a death in the family and was out of town--which couldn't be helped. No one cared enough to cancel their plans and come back to help us. The Governor was in Perquimans and Chowan but no mention of Pasquotank. This is what you elected to be our mayor folks. But he does political favors for you that helped him get elected so I guess that's all you care about.
