CORRECTS TO GRAY MATERIAL, NOT GRAY FLUIDS - In this image made from Friday Sept. 21, 2018 drone video provided by the N.C. Department of Environmental Quality, light gray material flows out of a flooded coal ash dump toward the Cape Fear River at Duke Energy's L.V. Sutton Power Station in Wilmington, N.C. Floodwaters from Hurricane Florence breached a dam at the plant's 1,100 reservoir on Saturday, Sept 22, 2018, flooding a dump containing 400,000 cubic yards (305,820 cubic meters) of coal ash. The gray ash left over when coal is burned to generate electricity contains mercury, lead, arsenic and other toxic heavy metals. (N.C. Department of Environmental Quality via AP)
