Flood watch in Haywood

By Vicki Hyatt | May 05, 2013

Emergency responders are carefully watching the rivers in Haywood following more than a week of on and off rain.

County EMS Director Greg Shuping said there is minor flooding in the Cruso area, and based on that, the Evergreen Packaging mill response team has been activated.

The Doppler radar shows that the worst of the storm may be over in Haywood, Shuping said.

"It looks like we're on the backside of this," he said, " but we're on guard and ready to go if necessary."
