Little Pee Dee River overwhelms homes with flooding

Water from the Little Pee Dee River has overwhelmed homes in Brittons Neck, just across the Marion County line.

Now residents worry the Great Pee Dee River, to their southwest, will add to the already rising water in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence.
