Flooding Closes Road At N.C. Line;
Rescue Squad Is At Scene

Flooding has closed Tennessee Route 70 (Asheville Highway) at the North Carolina state line and the Greeneville Emergency & Rescue Squad is on standby there for flood operations.

The Rescue Squad was called into action late Wednesday, said Capt. Bucky Ayers in a text to The Greeneville Sun.

Motorists who need to travel from Greeneville/Greene County to areas of North Carolina such as Marshall, Hot Springs, Asheville, Walnut, Mars Hill or Weaverville will need to take Interstate 26, as a result of flooding on Wednesday along N.C. Highway 208 and U.S. 25/70.

The Rescue Squad has staged for operations in those areas, Ayers said late Wednesday.

Highways 208 and 25/70, which would normally be used by a motorist traveling to North Carolina via Tennessee Rt. 70 (the Asheville Highway), currently have standing water in lanes affecting travelers in both directions, according to a 911 spokesman for Madison County, N.C.

Emergency dispatchers in Madison County told The Greeneville Sun about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday that they are recommending that motorists use Interstate 26 when traveling between Tennessee and the Marshall/Asheville area.
