This week on the Down East Journal, it’s been six months since Hurricane Matthew wreaked havoc here in eastern North Carolina. We talk about recovery and buyouts in Lenoir and Craven counties. Plus, we visit local strawberry farms experiencing an early season. Also, a new report this week ranks the Neuse and Cape Fear Rivers in the top ten endangered rivers in the United States. And, the first ever Science Storytelling Show takes place in Kinston next week.
