February 2021: Most read stories of the month

SOUTHEASTERN NC — We are leaving behind February and starting Monday fresh, with a new week and a new month.

A lot happened in a short 28 days, perhaps some of the most important news that PCD has consistently followed are vaccinations ramping up as Covid-19 numbers consistently fall. Though they didn’t make the top 10 this month, you can catch up on the news here.

What did attract most attention from our readers is the EF3 tornado that hit Brunswick County only two weeks ago. PCD reporter Alexandria Sands captured the imagery in a gallery: “In Photos: At least 60 homes damaged from EF3 tornado in Brunswick County.”

Falling behind was the announcement from New Hanover County that tax revaluations had risen by 13.3. billion over the last year: “New Hanover tax revaluations up by 30%, letters mailed to property owners by end of month.”

Finally, the third most read story of February revolves around Duke Energy announcing license renewals of its six nuclear plants: “Duke Energy wants to keep Brunswick Nuclear Plant running.”

In case you missed it, you can catch up on all three below and the other top 10 stories stories from February.
