Hurricane Florence is over now, but the news from events that happened is still coming out. Friday, during the heavier rain and wind portion of the storm, a reporter was on-scene. She was between TV shots, and was doing a Facebook Live update.

Julie Wilson is the reporter, and she helped rescue a woman and her child’s therapy dog. The dog, a Rottweiler, was trapped in a nearby house that was flooding. The woman had tried to carry the dog out of the house, but couldn’t carry it. Julie was able to get int the house and carry the dog out for the woman.

Here’s her actual live stream where she rescued the dog on video. It starts about 1:35 into the video:

Julie helped save that dog, and made sure a family was ok and got to stay together. As for right now, parts of North Carolina are still flooded, and the water levels are still rising a little bit, but should be dropping hopefully within the next few days. There’s more to Julie’s rescue story here.
