People in North Carolina who had damage to their homes caused by hurricanes Matthew or Florence are down to just days to apply for a recovery program.

Applications for the ReBuild NC Homeowner Recovery Program have to be in by 5 p.m. on Friday.

The program rebuilds or restores houses for eligible homeowners in counties most impacted by the two storms.

The program has completed 1,103 construction projects to date.

She has been involved in the media industry in eastern North Carolina for more than three years. An award-winning journalist and mother of four, Annette moved to ENC to be closer to family – in particular, her two young grandchildren. It’s possible that a -27 day with a -68 windchill in Minnesota may have also played a role in that decision. In her spare time, Annette does a lot of toddler and baby cuddling, reading, designing costumes for children’s theater and producing the coolest Halloween costumes anyone has ever seen. She has also worked as a diversity and inclusion facilitator serving school districts and large corporations. It’s the people that make this beautiful area special, and she wants to share those stories that touch the hearts of others. If you have a story idea to share, please reach out by email to
