WATAUGA COUNTY, N.C. — The weekend storm damaged more than a dozen roads in the mountains and even left one road under 8-feet of water.
Crews said the hardest hit area was the central part of Watauga County, which received 3-inches of rain in under an hour, causing flash flooding.
NCDOT said its workers hit the ground running Monday to clear drainage ditches and pipes on several roads that flooded over the weekend or had mudslides.
“Be prepared for the weather forecast that they’re saying we’re getting more rain,” Kevin Whittington from NCDOT said. “We’re trying to make sure we don’t sustain more damage with pipes being stopped up.”
