Late last night there was a conference between the Town of Smithfield, Duke Energy, and Johnston County Officials.
According to Mayor Moore they were hopeful of having power restored this morning in Smithfield but we can’t confirm that 100% that the town has power.
According to Mayor Moore of Smithfield the water plant will stop producing water at midnight. The plant will be shut down for 3-4 days therefore the town relying on filled tanks to last those days for the Town of Smithfield. As of right now most of the county still does not have water.
At this time the Town Hall of Smithfield is operational due to having power and water and plan on operating like normal. We do know however the Town Hall does have a generator.
