River Flooding Still A Concern in Eastern Carolina

Posted: Updated:

Rain chances continue to be in the forecast the next several days as we stay in an unsettled, summer type pattern across Eastern North Carolina. But, these showers and storms continue to bring more problems in the way of flooding to local waterways.

Currently, Contentnea Creek at Hookerton and the Neuse River at Goldsboro and Kinston are all at flood stage. This comes after nearly two weeks of rain across Eastern North Carolina, producing in some areas, 200 percent of normal rainfall amounts for the month of June.

The forecast for our local rivers shows a falling trend for the Neuse River at Goldsboro. This gauge are expected to fall below flood stage tonight, but continue to run high and swollen. Contentnea Creek at Hookerton is expected to stay in a steady flood through this week. This creek is running around a foot above normal. The Neuse River at Kinston continues to rise over the next several days. The river is currently expected to crest at 16.4 feet. At 17 feet, low lying lands near the river and the campgrounds at Neuseway Nature Park are flooded.

With the threat of more rain through the next several days for Eastern Carolina, these rivers may continue to be in a flooded state.
