GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Mayor Allen Thomas gave his final Hurricane Matthew clean-up update Wednesday.
Most people were given approval to move back into their homes.
Eight inspection crews surveyed more than 800 structures over the past few days.
Each home has a colored placard: green, yellow or red.
Green means residents can move back in.
Yellow is also a go-ahead to move in, but there may have minor damages.
Eight homes have a red placard, which means there was more than a foot of water in the home.
Thomas said those owners must get building permits.
“The areas that remain under mandatory no-go and curfew area include the Town Common,” said Thomas. “Also the Dock Side neighborhood…areas north of River Drive including the dog park and Greenway area throughout the city of Greenville.”
All roads are open, including the Greene Street bridges, and the goal is to lift the state of emergency order by Friday.
