Lenoir County has closed the South Lenoir High School shelter. 

Power went out for several hours at the gymnasium that was housing 117 evacuees from Hurricane Florence. The roof was also deteriorating, according to Bryan Hanks, public information officer for Lenoir County. 

All of the evacuees were being moved at about noon Friday to the county’s primary shelter at Lenoir Community College, where 226 evacuees were staying, Hanks said. 

The LCC shelter will hold more than 800 evacuees.
