With Hurricane Florence bearing down on the Twin Counties, Mayor David Combs is imposing a curfew beginning 8 p.m. Thursday in Rocky Mount.
Curfew hours will be effective from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. through Saturday.
Everyone in the city is expected to observe the curfew by “remaining in their homes, offices or places of business during the curfew hours designated by the mayor, or until such earlier time as the curfew hereby imposed shall be terminated,” according to the State of Emergency declaration and curfew proclamation signed by Combs.
Only doctors, nurses engaged in rendering assistance to the sick or injured, police officers, firefighters and other authorized agents and employees of the city, county or state are exempt from the curfew.
