– Just because it’s sunny doesn’t mean Florence is through with us yet. North Carolina Department of Transportation spokesperson Jen Thompson says more than 100 roads in our area are either flooded or damaged from the storm. Most are secondary roads. Anson County was hit the hardest.

Thompson says more than 1,200 roads are impacted state-wide. Issues include shoulder eroding, road washed out, pipe failure causing collapse, or drift of debris onto road or bridge.

For some roads, Thompson says it could be a matter of waiting until water recedes to reopen the road. For others with structural damage, it could take weeks to repair.

Several portions of NC Hwy 145 in Anson County are blocked off. This is the only main NC highway impacted in our 5 county NCDOT district.
