    We live in NW Charlotte. We only got about 5" of rain. The SE part of the county got almost 10", and where my mom lives, Anson county, got close to 12"

    Just read where Sanderson Farms lost 1.5 million chickens due to drowning!

    They died trapped in their barns.

    Looks like they would have opened the doors and let them out before the storm hit. Animals usually come home to roost anyway.

    The farmers can't claim it on insurance if they let the chickens go. I know it sounds harsh, but make no mistake, those aren't pets, they're a mans lively hood' and in this instance they were probably worth more dead than hoping they might survive and come back. Also, those aren't free range chickens. The only life they know is inside that building...
