RALEIGH, North Carolina (WTVD) — The rains have subsided but flooding remains a concern for much of the ABC11 viewing area. Road conditions have caused several school systems to move to a delayed schedule for Wednesday.
On Tuesday evening, Johnston County Public Schools announced that staff and students will be on a two-hour delay Wednesday because of road conditions. Wayne County will also operate on a two-hour delay as will Nash-Rocky Mount School. Edgecombe County Schools said it will operate on a three-hour delay.

There are widespread road closures caused by water over the road and reports of water rescues as drivers got stuck in high water.
In Clayton, Castleberry Road, which runs along the Neuse near Highway 42 is impassable. Rising water is noticeable. But Clayton officials are watching other flood-prone roads: Amelia Church, Shotwell, Glen Laurel and Covered Bridge roads. The trailhead at Clayton River Walk on the Neuse is under water.
ABC11 spoke to one Clayton woman, who did not want to be identified, on Tuesday night.
