2010: Rescues In Cove City In Craven County

Cove City in Craven County is experiencing severe flooding, to the point people were rescued from their homes.

At least four people have been safely taken out of their homes by boats from the Cove City Fire Department. It happened on Jeremy Street.

One official says it is the worst flooding Cove City has seen in years.

On Dover Road, three homes are endangered because of rising waters. One family with six children tells WITN News they have a canoe ready in case they need to evacuate their mobile home.

    Terry is right on the money. cleaning out ditches and culverts is pretty hard work. mostly with a shovel. that is something the state does not sign up for anymore. They are more into the light duty (labor) or machinery role. times have certainly changed. more tax, less service.

    I do understand what it means to lose your belongings! Believe me I do! But I was hoping they weren't sitting back waiting until the last minute, and then cram everything into a canoe and scramble. I am glad to hear they are all safe now.

    @Anonymous: the family in the story said they have six children and have a canoe ready. Using what you have? For heaven's sake, I would hope they'd use their brain that they have! It's raining. Waters rising. GET OUT NOW. Don't wait until the middle of the night to get out and hope to heavens you don't topple the CANOE! Where will they go with a CANOE?

    It is not a canoe. We know the proper way to rescue water stranded victims.
