From the Coleys in Raleigh

Your broadcasts and a 5-inch battery operated black & white TV were my anchor during Hurricane Fran.

My husband worked at the N&O and once it became clear that Hurricane Fran was coming to Raleigh, it was too late for him to come home.

I was home alone with 2 elementary age children and our dog. Our son and the dog slept through the storm, but my daughter and I watched your updates throughout the night as we lost power, telephone
service and 9 trees fell on our home.

THANK YOU and our thanks to your wife & family for sharing you with all of us these 30 years and for the next 30.
