Storm Cleanup Continues

Wayne Howard
Staff Writer

The cleanup from Monday's severe weather in Cleveland, Catawba, Burke, Caldwell and other counties in a line from Cleveland County northeastward where severe storms and at least one tornado occurred continues.

Cleveland County Schools issued the following statement for Wednesday, October 25th:

Carolina Trust Bank

"Many roads in the Burns Zone are still not travelable due to fallen trees and debris. Therefore, schools in the Burns Zone will be closed for students with an optional workday for teachers. This closing also includes Cleveland Early College, North Shelby School, and Turning Point Academy.

"Many teachers and school staff members who work in the Crest, Kings Mountain, and Shelby zones live in impacted areas of the county. Knowing this, these zones will operate on a two-hour delay.

"Schools in Crest, Kings Mountain, and Shelby zones will begin their day two hours later than normal. Kidz Around before-school care will also delay two hours. All staff in these zones are encouraged to arrive as close to the normal start time as possible while making certain to travel with caution."

Catawba County Schools get back to normal today after some were closed and others operated on a two-hour delay Tuesday. Hickory City Schools will operate on a two-hour delay.

Catawba Valley Community College will return to a normal schedule on Wednesday.

Power outages continue in the Hickory area with some homes not expected to get electricity restored until Thursday; it was estimated there were still 2,700 customers without power in upper Cleveland County. Caldwell County had over 1,300 still without electricity and Burke County had 4,400 still affected as of early Wednesday morning.

A portion of Lincoln County was included in the tornado warning Monday after a tornado was indicated on radar in the Belwood area of Cleveland County, but Lincoln escaped the most serious weather. Dr. Lory Morrow's visit at West Lincoln High School as a part of her series of community forums was cut short but the public portion of that event will be rescheduled. Similar events had already been held at East Lincoln and North Lincoln and the Lincolnton High School forum will be held Monday, November 6th.
