Governor Pat McCrory emphasized today that the ongoing life-threatening flooding caused by Hurricane Matthew is expected to continue impacting eastern and central North Carolina into the week.
“Yesterday I saw first-hand the very dangerous conditions that still exist for many people,” said Governor McCrory. “I am extremely proud of our emergency responders on the local, state and federal level, and I am proud of our citizens who are helping each other. I urge people impacted by this storm to take all instructions from local officials. Do not go through standing water. Do not put our first responders at risk in an effort to save you.”
