ICED OVER: Storm gone, but frozen impact still grips region

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A day after a potent winter storm passed through southeastern North Carolina, the region is still gripped by the storm’s impact.

What little thawing of roads was possible yesterday, when temperatures never reached above the freezing point, refroze overnight, leaving anyone who does need to drive today with an icy ride.

State and local governments warn drivers not to head out unless they absolutely have to. Many schools, governments and businesses have closed again today for what is a third day off for many people. With temperatures not expected to rise much above freezing today, many people could find themselves homebound again tomorrow.

Yesterday the NCDOT said the work crews did ahead of the storm to prepare roads helped. Still many major roads were reduced to rutted sheets of ice Wednesday evening. Meanwhile neighborhood streets looked more like ice rinks than roadways.

This morning, conditions are no better with vehicles slipping and sliding on the slick conditions.

A full thaw may not come until the weekend. The forecast is for a high temperature around 50 Friday with more warmth and even some rain moving in through Saturday and Sunday.

Boy clinging to life after 4 shot at NC church

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

ROCKY MOUNT, NC (AP) — A 12-year-old North Carolina boy remains in critical condition after being shot in the head while playing on a church playground.

Rocky Mount Police spokesman Cpl. Michael Lewis said Wednesday that the condition of Nyreek Horne remains unchanged a day after a gunman sprayed more than 15 bullets toward a crowd playing basketball behind the Word Tabernacle Church. Three other males, ages 13, 17 and 19 – were all treated and released.

Witnesses could provide only a vague description of the shooter, who ran away and was seen getting into a small, light-colored SUV. Rocky Mount police are offering a $5,000 reward for information that leads them to a suspect.

The shooting came days after 15-year-old Brian Freeman was shot and killed nearby. No arrests have yet been made.
