Town of Hillsborough had a landmark knocked over. The fallen red oak, one of the largest trees in town and thought to be over 200 years old, blocked Calvin Street and took out power lines but did not cause injuries or damage houses.
New Confederate States of America members pray at the site of the fallen Silent Sam statue as protesters continue to chant against them on Saturday, Sept. 8, 2018. The gathering was the third similar event held in Chapel Hill in the last few weeks. The rallies come after opponents of the statue toppled Silent Sam from its pedestal – leaving university administrators to decide whether or not to return the statue to its prominent spot on the Chapel Hill campus. The UNC Board of Governors has given Chancellor Carol Folt and the Board of Trustees until mid-November to issue a decision on what to do with the statue.

Jennifer, Braeden, and Warren Small in front of their home in south Raleigh. It wasn't long ago that owning a house seemed out of reach for the family. A recent study found that Wake County has 56,000 working families who make less than $39,000 a year that can't find affordable housing. That figure expected to increase to 150,000 households in just two decades. Photo by Ben McKeown / WUNC #affordablehousing #housing #Raleigh #northcarolina #wuncphotos
