  Severe flooding in western North Carolina this past weekend has forced people from their homes and closed down roads and bridges.   Stretches of the Catawba River have overrun its banks.   Jennifer Delgado has more on the impact of the extensive flooding.   The slow-moving series of thunderstorms caused intense rain, damaging much of western and central North Carolina in its path.   Up to 10 inches of rain dropped across the region, causing major flash flooding and power outages, forcing cars underwater and washing out roads and bridges.     "This has totally devastated this area," says Dion Burleson, Lincoln, North Carolina Public Information Officer. "There's been multiple water rescues taking place out here and a couple of roads that have washed away and the bridges have been washed away as well."   Many homeowners had to evacuate after a state of emergency was issued in Catawba County. Others at an apartment complex returned to find their belongings destroyed.   "I scraped pennies to get to move in her, so no insurance, says Janice Gordon, who recently moved into the buildiing and says everything was washed away. "It's bad. I mean I just started over and had just gotten stuff in here and I have lost everything again."   Many areas in the region are already several inches above normal for the year in rainfall.   And, on top of that, with the Atlantic hurricane season now ramping up, more nasty weather could hit the southeast in the coming weeks.   More rain hit North Carolina Sunday but dry weather is expected Monday and Tuesday before the threat of rain returns at midweek.
