Triad Rescue Teams Return to Haywood County
Swiftwater Rescue Teams from Greensboro and Winston-Salem left yesterday to return to Haywood County in the southwest part of North Carolina. The deployment was in response to Hurricane Ida, as the tropical depression could once again cause flooding in that part of the state. You may recall that Haywood County was hit hard with flooding just two weeks ago. Many of these same rescue units served in the area at that time, and return this week in case their services are once again needed. Six people died as a result of the flooding caused by tropical storm Fred.
