— WRAL viewers have been treated to the sight of double rainbows over the Atlantic Ocean and over Angier in the past week.

Viewer Beverly Lemley said that her parents, L.R. and Carol Fortune, saw a rainbow from their hotel room in Myrtle Beach last Tuesday.

"The end was exactly in front of their 14th floor balcony, marking a sunken treasure, maybe?!" Lemley wrote in an e-mail.

The rainbow lasted for only five minutes before fading away, she said.

Viewer Timothy Nicholson saw a double rainbow over Angier Monday evening.

"The second rainbow had started to fade by the time I got my camera out, but the first rainbow was still very vibrant," he wrote in an e-mail.
