State To Close 18 Historic Sites Due To Hanna

Nearly 20 historic sites will be closed due to the expected impact of Tropical Storm Hanna.

The N.C. Department of Cultural Resources announced Friday that
18 state historic sites will be closed Saturday, including the
state Capitol.

All nine state historic sites east of Interstate 95 will be closed. They include Historic Bath, Bentonville Battlefield, Brunswick Town, CSS Neuse and Roanoke Island Festival Park.

Among the sites in the Piedmont that will be closed are Duke
Homestead, Historic Stagville, Alamance Battlefield and Town Creek
Indian Mound.

All are in either tropical storm warning areas or high wind
watch areas. The sites will assess the situation after Hanna passes
through and will make decisions regarding reopening at that time.

    WITN where is your coverage of Hanna now that it has made landfall? I thought you would be "interested" in keeping those of us directly affected informed. Guess not!!!
