A flood warning is in effect for multiple counties through 12:30 pm Friday.
The heavy rain has finally left eastern Carolina, but there will still be plenty of standing water on the roadways. Drivers should continue to use extreme caution. Just one foot of moving water can sweep a vehicle off the road. Remember the saying: turn around, don't drown.
