Durham Public Schools delayed school-opening by two hours Tuesday because of flooding on some roads, and the Durham County Sheriff’s Office issued a list of roads for drivers to avoid.

The sheriff’s office said drivers should stay away from:

  • Snow Hill Rd between Toredge Rd and Infinity Rd
  • Moores Mill Rd at the Person County line
  • Old Oxford Rd between Cassum Rd and Lake Michie Dam Rd
  • Scott King Rd at Grandale Dr

Raleigh police and Wake County sheriff’s deputies also were dealing with traffic problems caused by some street flooding Tuesday morning.

Chapel Hill police reported a tree down on Clayton Road and an associated power outage.

The flooding resulted from rain that fell all day Monday and almost all night.
