With wet weather from Tuesday's storms, the potential for more flooding is possible.
The Tar River in Pitt County was swollen Wednesday from all of the rain. Water that has yet to drain from creeks and ditches pooled up around residential areas.
The city of Greenville and East Carolina University closed down certain parking lots and set out barricades in case of flooding.
Experts at ECU said the land is very flat, so water doesn't drain properly.
The concern for flooding is not the only issue. The ground is saturated, which could loosen the soil around trees. Keep in mind that high winds could call those trees to fall.
Greenville police released a list of potential flood zones for Wednesday.
-14th Street and Charles Street
·10th Street and College Hill
·1st Street and Elm Street
·Town Common Area
·Reade Street and Cotanche Street
·Evans Street and Deck Street
·Evans Street and Arlington Boulevard
·Firetower Road near Arlington Boulevard
·Dickinson Avenue Underpass
·Old Tar Road
Police say other areas could also flood, but these are the expected trouble spots. Greenville police will be meeting with all city department heads this afternoon to coordinate a joint response plan in the event of an emergency situation.
ECU says several parking areas on campus remain closed because of overnight flooding.
The lot at the bottom of College Hill will be closed indefinitely, while the lower at Minges Coliseum is closed until it clears up.
Officials said Charles near Ficklen Street, which is near ECU's Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium, is closed because of high water. One driver reported getting stuck in the water there around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday. He was able to get out of his car.
Evans Street from Arlington Blvd. to Howell St. is also closed because of high water.
Police say those streets will stay closed until the water recedes.
We have reports of flooding on Arlington Boulevard, Memorial Boulevard and Greenville Boulevard.
