People who had to be in court said activity was slower than usual and were surprised sessions were not canceled because of the driving conditions.

“I am a careful driver, but I mean not everyone is careful. I would have stayed in and not have come out. if I didn’t have to come to court, I would still have been in the house,” said Chad Hiles.

The New Hanover County Courthouse ended up closing its doors mid-afternoon because of the state of county’s emergency.
