BRUNSWICK COUNTY — The Town of Belville will close its Riverwalk at 1 p.m., including its farmers market, as Tropical Storm Colin moves across the coast.

Storm warnings are in effect in the tri-county region with heavy rain and a potential for flash flooding. One to 3 inches of rain can be expected, along with strong rip currents.

Individuals are asked to secure loose outdoor items as wind gusts could top out at 40 or so miles per hour.
