Southern Terrace Residents return home
Other areas could be released soon
October 21, 2016
Southern Terrace residents were given the nod to go back home around 2:30 p.m. Friday. Vehicles casually rode through the quiet neighborhood with drivers and passengers seemingly expressing satisfaction by face gestures.
Officials have yet to give a timetable to when the remaining citizens will return, however they believe it could be very soon.
With the exception of small pockets of water in a few spots, the town is virtually dry. In somewhat of a celebration, on Wednesday Mayor Bobbie Jones, Mayor Pro Temp Linda Joyner and several other town officials walked from the Tar River Bridge in Tarboro to Princeville Town Hall.
The National Guard Army pumped millions of gallons out of the town which expedited the transition from flood stage to dry land.
Inspection teams were some of the first to cross the bridge. They are continuing inspecting houses and placing codes on them according to their respective conditions.
The Southern Terrace Community saw limited flooding.
A Distribution Center is opened at the Edgecombe County Chamber of Commerce 509 Trade St. in Tarboro.
For information or concerns call 252-824-0108.

Leaving Emergency Shelter at St. Stephen Academy in Tarboro. The sun is shining brighter today. Some residents will be able to return to their homes to find out the condition. Homes are marked. Escorts provided by police, deputies and volunteers. Green means you’re okay. Red means you will not be able to return at this time. Yellow means you need to read the warnings and risks ( water in your vents or saturated insulation under your homes, for example) then consider before deciding to return. Thanks Princeville Town manager Daniel Gerald for the update. Shelly Willingham Curmilus Butch Dancy II Viola Harris Red Cross, FEMA, State Emergency Responders, teams, law enforcement, National Guard. Your services are greatly appreciated.
Southern terrace will return today as well as lakeside… preparations are currently being made.
Should be allowed in around 2:30 PM Friday October 21, 2016.
If family and friends whom are able if they would just do what they can to help family member or friend oh how sweet that would be. And this don’t mean it has to cost you a lot you can get with other resources like get folk to adopt a family or friend.
I have received only one phone call from a family and only 2 calls from friends to ask me what they could do for my dad and I.
It could be something as simple as a hot/cold meal, gas money no matter how small or how large.
But some folk want to do stuff for show. Well do whatever just voicing my ignant opinion.
I am going to do all I can to keep my dad comfortable but just the thought of if just my family alone, what my family could do to make a huge difference so just trying to make other folk think.
Just my ignant opinion!
