Tarboro, N.C., November 7, 1999 -- The September floodwaters brought by rains from Hurricanes Dennis and Floyd left great devastation - including damage from almost four feet of water that invaded the Eastern Star Baptist Church in Tarboro.  Congresswoman Eva M. Clayton (NC-1) pitched in to help clean up the church, the inside of which was gutted in order to save the building itself.  Note the fungus growth on the walls, which denotes the flood's high water levels.  Photo by DAVE GATLEY/ FEMA News Photo
