Low-lying areas along the New Bern riverfront are beginning to flood. 

Those areas include Trent Court, Union Point Park, Pollock/East Front Street, National Avenue/Oaks Road, Trent Shores, and more.

Shelters are still open in the city of New Bern.

Ben Quinn is at capacity, but Craven County has opened an additional shelter at Trent Park Elementary School, 2500 Educational Drive, for evacuees. 

Havelock High School, Farm Life Elementary, and Brinson Elementary remain open, the city said they are also seeing an increase in people coming in. 

The city said the window for evacuation has already closed in many areas of New Bern due to rising floodwaters, and that window will continue closing quickly on those who wish to get out.
