GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. — As city cleanup crews work to clear the leftover storm debris, they ask that people keep debris piles away from storm drains and off the streets to prevent flooding.
The City of High Point has hired six contractors to help with cleanup. Crews will work up to seven days a week.
Greensboro’s Field Operation Director Dale Wyrick said the city is about 40 percent finished with debris pick up.
Greensboro has hired 10 crews of 30 men to help with their rounds.
Wyrick said the possible rain and thunderstorms could create localized flooding if residents do not keep their debris piles off the streets.
“Our intentions are to have our contractors work seven days a week, so they will be working through the weekend, but obviously if the rains get heavy … that will hamper our efforts to clean up,” Wyrick said.
