Published 12:00 am Friday, June 21, 2013

RALEIGH (AP) — State officials say Morrow Mountain State Park in Stanly County is still closed because of damage caused by recent storms.
The N.C. Division of Parks and Recreation says the park will remain closed for several weeks as work crews continue to assess damage, remove trees and clear debris from around facilities, roadways, camping areas and trails.
A statement from the division says repairs to damaged structures must be completed before they can be reopened. Hazardous trees on steep terrain may require removal by contractors. No reservations are being accepted for the park’s campsites, picnic shelters and vacation cabins
There were no injuries from the June 13 storm. Several hundred trees were toppled, and at least five park structures, a cabin and vehicles belonging to park visitors were damaged.
