North Carolina Braces for Post-Florence Flooding; Hundreds of Roads Remain Closed

Some eastern North Carolina cities will experience flooding over the next several days as Hurricane Florence’s rain works its way back downstream to the coast.

As a result, more than 600 roads remain closed in the state, with waters continuing to rise across its eastern part.

Over the weekend, Gov. Roy Cooper and other state officials continued to warn people to be cautious on roads and not to travel to coastal areas affected by Florence, as flooding is expected to continue through this week.

“The opening and closing of roads are changing as the flooding continues,” Cooper said Friday at a news briefing at the emergency operations center in West Raleigh. “I can’t stress enough, don’t drive around barricades. Your car is not enough to protect you from dangerous flood waters, even if it only seems like a few inches.”
