As the remnants of Tropical Depression Jeanne head towards Eastern Carolina, officials in one city are warning residents of the potential for flash flooding.
The New Bern Police Department is asking drivers to pay attention to things like high water signs. Officials say they would rather drivers find an alternate route than to risk stalling their vehicle or getting swept away by flash flooding.
The police department also asks anyone calling to report a flooded roadway to call the police department's non-emergency number, instead of calling 911.
