Seven Springs Flooding (PHOTOS)

All the roads in Seven Springs are being closed as the Neuse River begins to flood Wayne County’s oldest community.

Town Commissioner Ronda Hughes says Seven Springs is getting ready for what could be the worst effects from Hurricane Florence.

Hughes says Seven Springs is expecting flood levels closer to Hurricane Fran, which is better than the devastation the town experienced during Hurricane Matthew in 2016.

Some residents have fled the town ahead of the flooding, and businesses have had to shut down and moved supplies out of their facilities.

Hughes thanks the generosity of everyone that is working to restore the community following this latest storm.

The Seven Springs Fire Department started placing road closed signs as the water crossed some of the roads on the other side of the river bridge and streets in town.

State law enforcement was brought in to control traffic on the Piney Grove Road to keep the public from driving around the barricade.

Everyone is advised to avoid the Seven Springs area until the river recedes.
