After days of misery following tropical storm Florence some good vibes were felt in a North Carolina shelter on Saturday as one of its residents sang to lift everyone’s spirits.

Cathy Yolanda Wright has been sheltering from the storm at Trent Park Elementary School which has been transformed into an evacuation centre. Cathy is 44-years-old and is disabled and was rescued from her house yesterday by a local man. The whole dinner line joined in her singing which cheered up many including children.

Florence slammed into the North Carolina coast as a large hurricane Friday, dumping nearly three feet (1 meter) of rain and swelling the region’s rivers. The resulting flooding forced swift-water rescues and left several people dead.
