Get out. Get out now.
There are a lot of people that are hurting, that are living in shelters and are preparing for major, major flooding.
As a governor, that is unacceptable. You are not only putting your life danger, you are putting emergency responders' lives in jeopardy.
It's going to be a long, tough journey.
She's sitting in a school cafeteria at this point in time crying and wondering what her life is going to be all about. It breaks your heart.
The power of water can kill people.
Hurricane Matthew is off the map. But it is still with us. And it is still deadly.
This is an extremely dangerous situation. We have neighborhoods underwater. I am praying we don't find people who were swept away.
There could be some backroads where we had people swept away. I'm praying that is not going to be.
The storm is not over for North Carolina.
As the sun rises in North Carolina and the blue sky returns, our state is facing major destruction and, sadly, loss of life.
This is a very, very serious and deadly storm.
I just hope that thing goes out to the ocean before it even hits our borders.
While we do not yet know how Hurricane Matthew will impact North Carolina, we do know that we can expect some form of impacts on our state. Already, we've seen substantial flooding in eastern and central parts of the state from recent rain events, and many areas are already saturated.
We are taking this storm seriously, and I encourage residents and visitors do the same.
I have been assured by the State Bureau of Investigation that the release will have no material impact on the independent investigation since most of the known witnesses have been interviewed.
I assume on October 1, when the new law is enacted, someone will be requesting that tape, and it will most likely go to a third-party arbitrator, which would be the judge.
There are more resources available – and I'm sure lessons learned from the past 24 hours.
Any violence directed toward our citizens or police officers or destruction of property should not be tolerated.
My heart bleeds for what our great city is going through.
North Carolina is currently receiving about one-third of our normal supply of fuel.
I strongly encourage all public and private institutions to both respect and allow our nation's judicial system to proceed without economic threats or political retaliation toward the 22 states that are currently challenging government overreach.
The issue of redefining gender and basic norms of privacy will be resolved in the near future in the United States court system for not only North Carolina, but the entire nation.
We think it's moving out pretty quickly, utilities are ready in case of power outages.
The Obama administration is bypassing Congress by attempting to rewrite the law.
He had made a request for more time to respond to the federal government, but that was denied.
He strongly disagrees with what he calls President Barack Obama's "objective to force our high schools to allow a boy in a woman's or girl's locker room facility.
He would review the ruling. This is a major, major change in social norms.
I do believe in our high schools, in our middle schools, in our universities, we should continue to have the tradition that we've been having in this country for years. And we have a women's facility and a men's facility. You know, it's worked out pretty well. And I don't think we need any further government interference.
He "will always call out government overreach. The city of Charlotte passed a bathroom ordinance mandate on every private sector employer in Charlotte, North Carolina, one of the largest, 15th, 16th-largest cities in the United States of America. And I think that's government overreach. It's not government's business to tell the private sector what their bathroom, locker room, or shower practices should be.
But at the same time, what we've got to do is deal with this extremely new social norm that has come to our nation at a very quick period of time.
Other politicians, from the White House to mayors and City Council members and, yes, our attorney general, have initiated and promoted conflict to advance their political agenda.
They're worried about a North Carolina bathroom ordinance while paying people a dollar an hour in China. There is a little bit of corporate hypocrisy.
You know, we all have to make adjustments in life. And we've had the proper etiquette situation for decades in our country, and all of a sudden through political correctness we're throwing away basic etiquette. I empathize with these people who have some very unique needs. But at the same time it doesn't mean everyone else should have to compromise a well established etiquette of men in men's restrooms and showers and locker rooms.
There is politically correct blackmail being directed toward some of our businesses. They are caught in a very coordinated political theater.
I have not had one company say they're moving out of North Carolina.
This is in addition to the soaking that we have experienced over the past week. Nearly the entire state is under flood watch and that is before the possible hurricane even begins to impact our state.
