been also reading about the possibly of floodwater over running pig farms down that way, and the waste issue would be really really bad. I hope that hasn't happened.

   That original warning about coal ash storage leaks is 6 days old.    The current information is that the situation is actually worse.    

 

   Duke (NYSESmiley Very HappyUK) confirms that three inactive coal-ash ponds on the site are underwater following about 20 inches of rain from Hurricane Florence. The company says visual inspections Thursday morning showed that ash and byproducts have been found outside the ponds.    

 

    That from a Charlotte NC business journal.
