    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.

    Re: roll in

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

    When the dust storms roll in, everyone leaves town.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
