Flooding North Iredell

The rains came and are still coming with flooding in Northern Iredell.  The area around Fox Bottoms Rd off of Bowles Farm Rd.  The bridge had been covered earlier in the day, and Fox Mountain Road had reports of the bridge being out there, and a school bus wrecking due to the flooding.  The second set of pictures were from Crestridge Rd in Statesville.
