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.
Cars were braving the roads in Pitt County as well as the rains kept tumbling down there. High water signs signaled the start of something dangerous, and yet more often than not, the cars would take their chances crossing the dangerous roads. The rains also threatened neighborhood yards, as they easily overflowed the curbs. However, officials say there were no major calls for rescue, or of roads being closed.
