In other Burr news, he said after the debate on Sunday, that "both candidates proved that they are not role models for the next generation.”
As he campaigned Monday in North Carolina, Burr said he’s sticking by Trump, saying he thinks Trump has sufficiently apologized multiple times.
“When I look at what the country needs – and that’s an economy that grows, jobs that are created and a strong national defense – I’m convinced that I can’t get there with Hillary Clinton. So, yeah, I’m supporting Donald Trump,” Burr said.
No. I'm not supporting Donald trump anymore.— aaroncarter (@aaroncarter) October 11, 2016
Information from the state Division of Emergency Management or emergency operations center shows 10 of the storm-related deaths involved motor vehicles.

Instead of cutting down trees, Charlotte is looking at buying land specifically to save them.
Also notable in the report, reported incidents of rape are down from 26 in 2014 to 21 in 2015. No data is shown for 2013.
Students at UNC expressed concerns and questions about what the numbers might mean. University Police Chief Jeff McCracken said the rise in the number of reports may be attributed to the increase in campus safety programs.
And that's all for today. Go forth and be merry my friends. If you can't be merry, here's a video to cheer you up:
Charlotte City Council is set to spend $376,000 to buy land in northeast Charlotte as part of the city’s tree save program.
The 23-acre parcel is set back from Plott Road, near Robinson Church Road. The money for the purchase comes from a fund that developers can pay into in lieu of meeting tree save and tree planting requirements at certain new developments.
The money is used for buying land and preserving trees. The land in question was logged in 2009, removing 18 acres of mature trees. About five acres of mature forest are left on the site, and the rest is regenerating with young trees, the city said.
