DroneRise – Flooding in North Carolina captured with a DJI Phantom 4 Pro+

Good morning, today we have a drone video of an area in North Carolina that has been affected by the flooding from Hurricane Florence. The footage was shot with a DJI Phantom 4 Pro+. I can only imagine how hard many people in those areas must have been hit by both the storm and the flooding. The video has been submitted by James C. who fly his drone there for work. For yesterday’s headlines, we have news about simulated drone strikes or an airplane wing, a passenger drone in the Philippines and the U.S. Border Patrol using drones to watch the border.

Today’s Phantom 4 Pro+ video

Today’s drone video was submitted by James C. and was captured on a DJI Phantom 4 Pro+ while flown for work purposes. It shows an area in North Carolina (Boardman, Fair Bluff, Winnabow) that has been affected by the flooding from Hurricane Florence. As you can see in this video as well the flooding covers large areas and impacts many local residents. Here’s what James had to say:

“Hey Guys, I just got back from doing aerial work in the North Carolina area that is being affected by the flooding from Hurricane Florence. It is really a mess up there and the people are going to be it in for a long time. I thought you might be interested in a birds-eye view of the situation on the ground. Here’s a look at a few places. I used my Phantom 4 Pro+ for these shots. James C.”
