Hurricane Ian Remnants give NC an Opportunity to test it's new Weather Warning System
With this inclement weather headed our way the storm will mark the first time North Carolina officials will use the state’s new advanced flood-warning system during a major weather event.
The system relies on data from a network of 400 river and stream gauges so NCDOT and State Emergency Management officials can analyze, map and communicate in real-time any flood risks to roads, bridges and culverts. The system will enable NCDOT to know more quickly where and when to close roads and alert first responders and the public. Real-time travel updates can be found at DriveNC.Gov.
