Another post, from North Carolina Department of Transportation maintenance supervisor Jeff Garrett, included a photo of a fish that was in the process of eating another fish when it died.


The dead fish aren’t just a novelty—local residents say that they’re beginning to stink. Facebook commenter Aleksandr Gruzinskaya described it as a “horrible decaying flesh smell” that adds “insult to injury” as the region recovers from the rest of the storm damage.
