Duplin County Says Stay Out

Duplin County Sheriff's deputies are urging people not to come to their county.

They are urging all holiday travelers to find alternate routes to their destinations because they say they have numerous closed roads, and are expecting more to flood. They are also asking all residents who live in low lying areas to also evacuate now. They expect their rivers to flood around Monday, so don't wait until then. They do have a shelter open at Chinquapin Elementary School and the Red Cross is also assisting.
