09/17/2018- A former resident was at the center of the action as Hurricane Florence made landfall in the Carolinas over the weekend. Ken Conners, former News Director for Bay Cities Radio, is now the News Director for WGBR Radio and Goldsboro-daily-news-dot-com in Goldsboro, North Carolina. He says although some of the initial predictions for Florence were scaled back, she still packed a powerful punch.
No evacuation orders were given for the Goldsboro area, which is about 100 miles inland from the Atlantic, and Conners says many of those that fled from the coast are currently being housed at shelters in his area.
