Rain Ends But Flooding Persists (PHOTOS)

There was a welcome sight Friday afternoon as the sun briefly shone over Wayne County.  However, that followed several days of heavy rains that have swollen local rivers and creeks.

The 7 AM update from the National Weather Service shows the Neuse River near Goldsboro is currently at approximately 22-feet, in “Moderate Flood Stage.”  The river is expected to continue rising to a crest of nearly 23-feet over the next day or so. A Flood Warning remains in effect for Wayne County.

The flooding has already impacted some roads and structures across the area.  NCDOT crews were closing down water-covered roads across the county on Friday.
