Although Hurricane Florence has been downgraded to a Category 1 storm, it still has the potential to leave a wake of destruction in its path.
The storm has already claimed its first victims, a mother and her infant. A tree collapsed on a portion of their house preventing them from getting out, and ultimately preventing them from being rescued in time.
Amidst the tragedy, there are already stories of rescues coming in. Brave people going above and beyond the call of duty. A local Jacksonville, North Carolina Reporter, Adriana Diaz, caught up with a Pastor who was able to rescue several kittens and dogs.
“This is what people have been worried about, storm surge, water coming in. Being pushed in from the Atlantic. We’re twenty miles inland right now, but it’s still flooding.”
This is so good!!
The world needs more heroes like this pastor.

People are thankful for the pastor helping, but mystified that people could just leave their animals out!
Some of the dogs that were rescued
You can see men in their boat looking for anyone to help
Please keep these people in your prayers.
