Hundreds show up to Greene Street Bridge prayer vigil in Greenville


GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Hundreds showed up to a prayer vigil at the closed Greene Street Bridge in Greenville where community members and pastors came together to pray for everyone impacted by the flooding.

It’s still not clear how the bridge closing could impact access to certain areas of the county, but what is clear is the community is rallying to help.

“Even though the residents of the county and members of our community may soon be separated geographically, our resolve to endure and dedication to serve our community have kept us united here in Pitt County as one county,” said Scott Elliott, Pitt County manager.

There are now five shelters open in Pitt County: E.B. Aycock, Wellcome, Hope and Ayden middle schools, and North Pitt High School.

While anyone is invited to join the community in praying for these victims, if you’re able to do more, communities, school districts and shelters are still looking for donations.

As WNCT gathers more information, we’ll have details on how you can help have more on how you can help coming up Wednesday night on WNCT at 5 p.m.
