GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - The city of Greensboro says flooding from Tropical Storm Michael caused more than 1 million gallons of untreated wastewater to overflow from its facilities.

The city announced the spills Saturday evening. It says the largest discharge was 800,000 gallons that flowed over a 16-hour period into a creek.

According to the News & Record , the city says the downstream areas were inspected and cleaned up where necessary.

Flooding during Hurricane Florence last month also caused sewage overflows in Greensboro.
