    Update WWAY-TV had to take precautions due to a report of a Tornado during the fallout of Florence.

    WILMINGTON, N.C. -- In the midst of reporting about the tornado warnings after the arrival of Hurricane Florence, one news station had a warning that hit a little too close to home.

    The team at WWAY in North Carolina, were in the middle of coverage on Sunday morning when they were told it was no longer safe to stay on set due to a tornado warning in Leland.

    "OK guys, we are going to have to stop coverage right now because we have got to get to our safe zone right now," one of the journalists can be heard saying. "So please take shelter, and we'll get back to you as soon as we can."

    The station posted on Twitter that everyone is all right . They continued to air coverage in spite of the warnings and in spite of a leak in their ceiling.

    Here is an update on Florence and its effects on Local Radio in North and SOuth Carolinas.

    All of us at ALL ACCESS wish nothing but the best, and a speedy recovery from HURRICANE FLORENCE, to all our friends in NORTH CAROLINA - which took the brunt of the storm that made landfall late last week and remains a strong rainmaker causing flooding in many parts of the area.

    WILMINGTON, NC was hit particularly hard and is now dealing with major flooding, with perhaps the worst yet to come. THE WASHINGTON POST reports, "water has rendered WILMINGTON an island, shut off from the rest of the world. It is impossible to get in and out of the city now. Flooding closed interstates and secondary roads, choking it off by land. The airport has been shuttered since WEDNESDAY. It is not accessible by sea, with the PORT OF WILMINGTON on CAPE FEAR RIVER closed.

    "WILMINGTON likely will stay marooned for at least another day. It is still raining. It has been raining nearly constantly for days. The rivers are still rising, widespread flooding is expected, and Gov. ROY COOPER said the storm has 'never been more dangerous.' Officials said at least 450 people were rescued from floodwaters in the WILMINGTON area. One official issued a blunt warning to anyone looking to travel to WILMINGTON, including those who evacuated ahead of the storm and are anxiously waiting to return and see the condition of their home. 'Do not come here,' said WOODY WHITE, chairman of the board of commissioners of NEW HANOVER COUNTY. 'There’s no access to WILMINGTON.'”

    WNAM is reporting that high water trucks have arrived in Wilmington with four days of supplies. I'll be back in five minutes with the names of those involved.

    "I'm Mike Moss." Kaley Hartung reporting. Don't ask me to spell it. Never mind. All she mentioned was that people were isolated and frustrated by shortages. No mention of trucks coming in. "I'm Mike Moss."
