Folks In Duplin County Still Fighting Flood Waters From Ernesto

One of the hardest hit areas was Duplin County. Flooded homes, yards and roadways is what you'll see driving down Highway 41 just South of Chinquapin. Melvin Williams has lived in his home on Highway 41 just South of Chinquapin in Duplin County all his life... A home that almost looks as if it were floating thanks to the flood waters. And it certainly is much of the same as you travel Southward.... Yards and homes filled with water, making for a busy weekend for rescue crews with the Northeast Fire Department. They've rescued over 125 families. Part of Highway 41 between Beulaville and Chinquapin remains closed due to water that has impacted its infrastructure. No shelters are open, but the American Red Cross remains in the area with food and water.
