Many farmers in Lincoln and Catawba counties say if they don't get help, they'll go out of business after recent rain and high water damaged crops.
Hundreds of acres of crops have been destroyed.
On Tuesday, Gov. Pat McCrory visited both counties where residents are cleaning up after flooding from the weekend’s heavy rains. While he looked at the damage to the washed out roads, bridges and homes, he said he hasn't forgotten about the farmers.
The governor told them he's working with the agriculture department to see if the state can help farmers whose crops have been damaged by the water.
One farmer said there are major concerns about more rain on the way.
“We won't have any choice, if everything else floats away we'll float away with it,” said Earlene Parlier.
Residents said they've never seen this type of flooding.
The U.S. Small Business Administration will be in the area Wednesday to help business owners and farmers.
