ROCKINGHAM — There are currently nine roads closed in Richmond County in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence, according to the North Carolina Department of Transportation.

Some of the roads could be open as early as this week, while others may take a month or two to repair.

Derby Road is closed due to flooding between McBride Road and Sycamore Lane north of Hoffman. DOT officials expect it to be open again by Sept. 27.

ROCKINGHAM — Richmond County was spared the severity of damage from Hurricane Florence seen by surrounding counties and Emergency Services Director Donna Wright contributes that to prayer and early planning.

“We were very fortunate,” she said early Tuesday afternoon on the flooded banks of Hitchcock Creek in Cordova. “That storm literally split and went around east and west of Richmond County.

“If you’ll look at the radar, the thinner bands actually are what were over us,” she continued. “The harder, more dangerous (weather) came to Scotland and to Anson and went up to Moore … 20 miles east or west could have been us, it was supposed to have been us … it was prayer (that kept the county out of danger).”
