Last water standing

Crossover Road, which runs between Newport Highway and Old Newport Highway, is still covered by high water — as a pizza delivery driver discovered Monday when she tried to cross it. The driver got out of the car unharmed. Officials said barrels blocking the road had been moved. County Road Superintendent Jonas Smelcer said waters have receded from all other public county roads that he’s aware of, but Crossover could remain closed for as long as two or three weeks.
