Wallace, N.C., September 28, 1999 -- Nearly 750,000 turkeys were lost to flooding in Duplin Co. alone, as well as 100,000 hogs, over 23,000 on this poultry farm in Wallace. The owner, Alan Reynor, lost at least $85,000 plus cleanup costs. He also lost 2,500 hogs and his corn crop. A good portion of the turkeys were incinerated (shown here), but the balance will be buried now that a site has been found. Photo by DAVE GATLEY/FEMA News Photo
