Haywood County officials say more than 30 people are missing after remnants of Tropical Storm Fred caused severe flooding in western North Carolina.
Gov. Roy Cooper declared a state of emergency Wednesday and noted both Haywood and Transylvania counties “were especially hard hit,” with as much as a foot of rain.
“Unconfirmed reports” in some communities put water levels at “3 to 7 feet higher than their previous high watermark,” Cooper said Wednesday.
