"Scenes From a Faded Motel Sheltering Florence Evacuees"

"Water trickles down the walls of the Knights Inn on Bragg Boulevard in Fayetteville, N.C., dripping through the hurricane-scarred roof onto bedspreads and mildewed carpets.

Employees have been sleeping here, caring for people displaced by Florence. It’s become their mission, and the fading motel a refuge of last resort.

Behind each brown door, cracked open during the storm for a breath of breeze, is a chapter in the story of Florence."
