Patty McQuillan: That's right. Yes, the car overturned and three people initially drown. There were two twins and one later died in the hospital. And there's one twin that is alive. A little 3-year-old boy.
Christine Romans: Oh, no. So it was a family with small children in the car. You can imagine how difficult that is to try to get - oh, that's just tragic. Also, a fatality there.
McQuillan: Yes, a 51-year-old man was - well, the highway patrol got the call about 4:00 in the afternoon that there was a vehicle submerged in water. So he probably was swept off the road.
John Roberts: It's so tragic when people - people don't understand that the water pools on the roadways, and the second your car hits that, you completely lose control. We also have some reports, Patty, of entire neighborhoods under water, places like Swansboro.
McQuillan: Well, there are hundreds of roads closed, and people being evacuated from subdivisions and trailer parks. All in all, about 150 people evacuated.
