NEW BERN (WCTI) -- Persimmons Waterfront Restaurant suffered damaged to its outside deck from the crashing waters on the coast from then Hurricane Florence, which was downgraded on Friday.


NewsChannel12 WCTI's Valentina Wilson toured the deck to show the damage to the restaurant.

Restaurant owners told Wilson only about an inch of water actually got into the business but the deck took a heavy hit.

Some more good news, the fuel pumps on the deck seemed to stay in tact, however.
