RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The rains have gone but flooding still poses a problem in much of eastern North Carolina.

The National Weather Service reports that flooding is possible along several major rivers in the state through the end of the week.

A flood warning was in effect in central North Carolina, including Raleigh, Durham, Cary, Rocky Mount, Goldsboro, Tarboro and Smithfield until midday Wednesday.

Flooding is also occurring or expected along the Cape Fear River in Fayetteville, the Tar River near Tarboro and Greenville and the Lumber River at Lumberton.

The problems are not expected to reach the same levels as the flooding from Hurricane Matthew last fall.

Several school districts started classes two hours later than usual Wednesday.
