Martin County lifts curfew

Posted: Updated:
WILLIAMSTON, N.C. - Martin County is lifting that curfew they implemented Wednesday night.
 
The curfew was originally implemented due to poor road conditions.
 
The county's Emergency Management Director Mike Stalls tells 9 On Your Side the main roads are passable. But many of the secondary roads are still covered in snow and ice.
 
That's why Stalls is urging drivers to be careful out there and to stay inside for the night.

Martin County has initiated a curfew beginning Wednesday night.

It starts at 9 p.m. and ends at 6 a.m. on Thursday.

Mike Stalls, director of the Martin County Department of Emergency Management said the roads are too dangerous for people to be driving.

9 On Your Side found many main roads and side streets still covered in several inches of snow.

Stalls said the curfew is mainly to serve as a reminder to people to not be driving through dangerous road conditions.

However, it is some fun for people walking around. 9 On Your Side passed by a family in the middle of the street just enjoying this winter wonderland.

"It reminds me a lot of my childhood, to go outside, pick up snow and hit anybody that comes around,” said Daniel Evurett.

Stay with 9 On Your Side as we continue to update conditions in Martin County throughout the day.
