SOUTHPORT, NC (WWAY) — The wind and rain from Hurricane Ian is already having impacts in the Cape Fear.

In Southport, the Police Department is reporting flooded streets in many locations, with the worst along Bay at Caswell Ave and W Moore due to tidal flooding.

The road is closed to all motorists.

Also in the Southport area, a large tree limb has been snapped by the gusty winds along Bay and Caswell. Public Works are expected to have the tree cleaned up by early Friday afternoon.

More trees were reported by the Shallotte Police Department as well.
