RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Heavy rains moving across North Carolina brought flooding and rockslides to the mountains and foothills Sunday, and meteorologists warn that more rain is on the way.

A record rainfall of 2.14 inches was set at Asheville Sunday. Watauga and Ashe counties in the northwest N.C. mountains reported receiving 2-3 inches of snow.

Some residents Transylvania County near Brevard were asked to evacuate on Sunday as mountain streams began overflowing their banks and submerging roads.

Several roads in Hendersonville remained underwater Monday.

The National Weather Service warns that flooding will continue to be a factor for the Yadkin and French Broad rivers for the next 24 hours.

Another front is expected to move across the state beginning late Tuesday, bringing an additional half inch or more of rain.
