BERTIE COUNTY: Flooding In Downtown Windsor

We are getting reports of some flooding in downtown Windsor in Bertie County.

Some residents in Windsor say the same areas that flooded last September with Tropical Storm Nicole are flooding once again.

WITN talked with the fire chief in Windsor who said all streets were open as of 9:00 p.m. Saturday and termed the flooding as minor at this point.

Several feet of water last fall caused the Cashie River to swell and flood the town.

Prior to Irene Windsor officials said the river level was lower than it was last fall, and they were better prepared for Irene.

    Thanks TrickyRicky....I am a business owner in Windsor and fleed the area on Friday with my elderly mother. Which from what I understand was a good thing..still no power at our home in askewville. But looking like we will get it back 2morrow. I will check it out when I get back in town and let you know. Thanks again!!!! God Bless.

      With everything that is going on why would you even be concerned if these days will have to be made up? That is just pure ignorance on your part!

    Right now the Cashie is forecast to crest somewhere sround 12.1' by midday tomorrow according to the National Weather Service River Forecast Center. That 4' above flood stage. It was forecast to hit 12' even earlier, but they've bumped that up since about 6:00.

        My thoughts are with you. I went through Floyd and Isabel. I see the same spots are flooding.
