McCrory tours flood ravaged Madison County

Posted: Updated:
MARSHALL, N.C. -

North Carolina governor Pat McCrory spent part of the day touring flood damaged Madison County.

The governor toured some of the worst hit areas with the sheriff and other elected officials.
     
Heavy rains have washed away roads, damaged homes and crops in the county. The cost of the damage is expected to run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.

"It's serious damage, that's first of all, we've got transportation damage, which I'm concerned about the safety of the people here, because we have shoulders of roads that are caving in, we've got mud slides and rock slides and if this rain continues it's going to be tough to repair it," said Gov. Pat McCrory, (R) North Carolina.

The governor said repairing the mess is going to take some time.
