Rain putting damper on beach vacations

SOUTHPORT, NC (WWAY) — The rain continues to pour, and tourists are not happy about it getting in the way of their 4th of July vacations.

“I don’t think we’ve been to the beach and had this much rain before, so it’s a little disappointing,” Bob Griggs said while visiting Southport.

Griggs traveled all the way from Kentucky to enjoy a nice 4th of July vacation at the beach, but he and his family were met by rain, rain and more rain. And he’s not the only one.

“We were hoping to go out on the beach, but it’s been a little rainy and thunderstorm,” tourist Jonathan Piland said.

Piland and his family wanted to spend their days having some fun in the sun, but when the dark clouds rolled in, their plans changed. They’ve been looking for other activities to fill the time.

Tourists we spoke with say they are just hoping for a little bit of sunny weather, so they can enjoy a nice day on the beach for 4th of July.
