Bladen County Emergency Services Director Bradley Kinlaw and Bladen County Sheriff Jim McVicker explain why citizens should still heed warnings in a video with BladenOnline.com.
The two officals explained water is still rising in parts of Bladen County. The curfew is still in effective for Bladen County starting at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, September 18th until Wednesday, September 19th at 7 a.m.
The roads and rising water are the main concern currently for safety.
Kinlaw said, “Barricades are there for a reason. We have had to park fire trucks in the road to keep people from going around the barricades. I’m asking your viewers to please stay off the roads until these waters stop rising.”
Sheriff McVicker cautions people driving through intersections with traffic lights still not working to proceed with caution and use four way stop rules.
There will be meals provided for displaced residents. More details will be provided as soon as they become available.
