McCrory lifts state of emergency for all of North Carolina

RALEIGH -- Gov. Pat McCrory has lifted a state of emergency declared for all 100 counties in North Carolina due to torrential rains that drenched the state.

With the action taken Friday, the N.C. Emergency Operations Center has deactivated and returned to normal status.

The truck size and weight and hours of service restriction waivers that were signed last week are still in effect as farmers work to salvage crops and companies continue to move goods across and through the state. These waivers will aid flood recovery in both North and South Carolina. The waivers are in effect for 30 days or until they are canceled.

State emergency management officials continue working closely with their counterparts in South Carolina to monitor any resource requests as the state steps up recovery efforts.
