    Default roll in

    Is the use of the phrasal verb roll in here correct?

    When famine rolls in, everyone leaves the town.

    When famine rolled into this town, everyone began moving to the capital.

    Default Re: roll in

    Famines don't usually roll in. Very bad storms roll in.

    When the dust storms roll in, everyone leaves town.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
