Flood Waters Trying to Leave

The water left behind by Tropical Storm Ernesto is trying to leave.

While rivers along the area are cresting and starting to flood, creeks and tributaries are trying their hardest to get the waters out of here. One of the last roads still closed in Lenoir County was the Seth West Road. It has since been reopened to emergency traffic, and homeowners along that stretch of roadway say the water is going down in their yards and along the bridge.
