The City of New Bern posted to social media that barricades have been put up at the South Front Street loop behind the bottom of Metcalf & Eden Streets and at the bottom of Fleet Street at South Front Street.

The city also says Oaks Road at Rennys Creek is experiencing flooding and the creek is rising quickly. Because of this, the area is closed.
