Two death after North Carolina flooding
A second person has died in the dangerous flood conditions in North Carolina. Rescue crews recovered the body of Juan Alberdi, 48, from a flood-swollen creek earlier today. Alberdi had been missing since Saturday night. Authorities say the dangerous conditions forced them to change their search.
"At this point we've pretty much gone into recovery ... the rescue situation is pretty much over."
"About 60 people from various agencies here ... including Blowing Rock, and last night we had Oakhill, Burke County."
Alberdi was swimming in the creek when he was swept away in the fast-moving current. The other victim of the flooding was a ten-year-old girl. She was also swimming in the same area. Her body was recovered Saturday night.
