JONES COUNTY, N.C. (WITN) - An Eastern Carolina school system closed early today due to concerns over flooding.

Jones County dismissed their schools at 11:30 a.m.

The sheriff’s office says Weyerhaeuser, Middle, and Oak Grove roads were closed due to high waters, while Chinquapin Chapel Road has water on it, but is still passable.

Late Friday, the DOT announced Highway 41 was closed in both directions near Trenton.
