Storms expected to snarl holiday travel

AAA Carolinas said there will be 48,000 more drivers on the roads this year in North Carolina compared to last year, and they may be driving in weather that will cause further delays.

“Safety is our number one concern,” said Jordan-Ashley Walker, with the Department of Transportation. “And we'll do whatever it takes to make sure the roads are clear.”

The DOT is preparing for winter weather, especially for drivers who travel through the mountains where snow is expected late Tuesday and Wednesday night. It has already suspended construction to reduce delays.

“Winter weather is obviously always a concern,” Walker said.

And it’s a concern at the airport, where there was bumper-to-bumper traffic Tuesday just to drop off and pick up passengers.

“It was horrendous,” Pat Nunn said. “It was terrible. I think the worst I've ever seen it.”

The Thanksgiving travel rush has already begun at Charlotte Douglas International Airport, where they expect a 4 percent increase in travelers over the weekend, but some people said it wasn't as bad as they expected.

“There was a big holdup for people wanting to pick people up, but stopping here we were OK and the daily parking (lot) is OK,” passenger Ofelia Claxton said.

She said she was glad to be in the lines Tuesday and not Wednesday -- one of the busiest days of the year for airports.

"We never travel the day before,” Claxton said. “We always pick Tuesday.”

Neighbor runs into burning home, rescues woman

Neighbors said they tried to rescue a woman from her burning home this afternoon in Gastonia.

That woman is being treated at a burn center Tuesday night.

One neighbor said he ran into the home to help before fire crews got there.

"I got smoke all over me, everything, burns, everything, but I had to do what I had to do,” said John Rabb. 

He said instinct kicked in when he heard neighbors screaming “fire.”

"When I stepped on my porch, I see the house on fire,” Rabb said. “My first instinct was to run to the house. The first thing I did was I grabbed a shovel, bust out all the windows (to) get some of the smoke out the house."

Rabb said he knew there was an elderly woman inside the nearby home on Jay Avenue, so he ran in but said he couldn't hear or see her.

Fire crews got there in minutes to see heavy smoke and flames.

Firefighters said at about 3:30 p.m. they found the woman inside unconscious.

"I saw her as they were wheeling her out and she had an oxygen mask on,” said neighbor Shelia Gaddis. “She was breathing and talking."

The woman was transported to Caromont Regional Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. She was then transported to Wake Forest Baptist Burn Center in Winston-Salem.

Rabb said he's glad crews got her out of the burning home and that he'd run right back in again to do it again.

"You got to, she helpless man,” he said. "That's your neighbor."

The home sustained about $40,000 in damages and is a total loss. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
