Governor Cooper Has Declared a State of Emergency for North Carolina Beginning 8:00am on September 7, 2017, in Preparation for Hurricane Irma.
This order waives weight and size restrictions on trucks carrying agriculture products to help farmers get their crops out of the field as quickly as possible. The State of Emergency is in place for all 100 counties as the impact is certain, but the direct path is still unclear. North Carolina can begin experiencing rain and wind from the system as early as Monday.
