A winter storm warning is in effect today for Beaufort, Dare, mainland Hyde, Martin, Tyrrell and Washington counties. A winter storm advisory is in effect today for the rest of Eastern Carolina. The threats are snow, sleet and freezing rain.
Eastern North Carolina cities like New Bern have been taking a pounding from Friday's high winds. Streets like East Front were buried underwater. Floodwaters threatened to enter some homes in the low lying area. Even the popular Union Point Park complex was almost completely flooded by wind driven water. Remember, experts say it's best never to drive through standing flood water. Just two feet of water is enough to carry your car away.
