Northam said residents should not travel through flood conditions.
“Don't ever travel through water — whether is moving or stationary. You can't be certain what's below the water's surface," he said. "Moving water can carry people, bicycles, wheelchairs and cars away — it doesn't take much.”
The National Weather Service also addressed the risk of flooding in a press release Tuesday.
“Inland flooding is the most deadly and serious threat hurricanes bring to inland areas of North Carolina," it said in the release. "If your yard or nearby roads around your home flood during ordinary thunderstorms, then you are at serious risk of flooding from torrential tropical rainfall. Those living near creeks, streams and drainage ditches should also closely watch water levels.”
The National Weather Service warned these floods could be unlike anything residents have seen in the past.
The aftermath of the storm could prove to a be a risk to public safety, Northam said.
“After the storm, take your time getting out into the community and continue to use extreme caution," he said. "It may take some time for the community to return to its normal state."
