The industry began in Shelby during the 1970s and 1980s, when self-made millionaire Earl Owensby made thirty-five low-budget, high-action films on his sound stages. Owensby starred in most of his own B-grade movies, and though the critics panned them, the films grossed millions of dollars.

Abstract:
The flood fueled by Hurricane Floyd in the fall of 1999 was massive and destructive. Over 8,000 homes were destroyed, and 15,000 were left uninhabitable. Loss of livestock and crops deprived farmers of their livelihoods. While many citizens have recovered a year later, for others the recovery process is far from over. Worse still, the threat of another storm and flood remains a possibility for the future.
