Weather Causes Major Problems in the Area

AUGUST 23, 2005 -- People are surveying the damage left over from Tuesday's storms.  They brought downpours to the area with lots of problems along area roads.

The hard rain caused at least one power outage.

There were flooded roads everywhere, especially north of Wilmington in the Castle Hayne area.

Scores of lightning strikes set off fire alarms and that kept firefighters on the move.

Cars flooded out at various intersections around the area.  There were a few accidents caused by the rain, but no one was seriously hurt.
