BURLINGTON, N.C. -- Residents in Burlington are waking up Thursday to damage from the previous night's storms.

Burlington police say they responded to 34 flooded road calls, five wrecks, five flooded homes and six trees down.

FOX8 Meteorologist Emily Byrd said Burlington received more than 6 inches of rain Wednesday night. The police department had asked people to stay off the roads unless there is an emergency due to extensive flooding in the city.

The police department tweeted out, "The BPD asks that all citizens STAY HOME unless an emergency. Many streets are flooded and impassable. This is for everyone's safety."

Further east, near Fayetteville, all Cumberland County and Hoke County schools are closed Thursday due to flooding roadways.

More showers and thunderstorms are expected Thursday. Stay with the FOX8 Interactive Radar for the latest.
