— Fayetteville has issued a curfew, closed roads and limited access to some neighborhoods as the city cleans up damage from Saturday's storms.

The Yadkin Road gate to Fort Bragg was closed Wednesday morning. Drivers should access the base at the Reilly Road and All-American gates.

Residents of storm-damaged neighborhoods along Fayetteville's Reilly and Yadkin roads can apply Tuesday for access cards to re-enter their property at two locations.

Cards will be distributed to residents with appropriate identification, such as a utility bill or driver's license, at:

  • Hardee’s, at the corner of Morganton and Reilly roads
  • Ponderosa Shopping Center, at the corner of Yadkin and Santa Fe roads 

Contractors slated to work in storm-damaged areas will need to go to the city Inspections Department at Fayetteville City Hall to apply for a contractor authorization form.

Police will check these new IDs at checkpoints at select neighborhoods in an effort to prevent unauthorized persons from entering the area and limit looting.

A curfew ran from 9 p.m. Tuesday to 6 a.m. Wednesday in the following areas:

  • Reilly Road, from Morganton Road to the Fort Bragg gate
  • Reilly Road, from Fillyaw Road to Yadkin Road
  • Yadkin Road at the Cottonade entrance to the Fort Bragg gate
  • Ramsey Street, from Interstate 295 to the Goodyear Tire and Rubber plant
  • Andrews Road
  • Farmers Road
  • Neighborhoods affected by the curfew include Stonegate, Fairfield Farms, Summerchase, those around Pine Forest High School, Lagrange, Summerhill, Cottonade and Cottage Lakes

    Japan stands tall for they did not steal from their neighbors in their tragedy. United States sure could use that lesson. I do hope they find and catch these thieves.

    Somoeone was going around these neighborhoods collecting deductables Sunday. Most companies have waived them. Sad people would do this. I hope they get caught.

    It would take the lowest of the low to loot in a time like this. How very ridiculous.

  • Jakeums Apr 19, 2011

    It would be foolish to think that it could be completely stopped.

    So, they want to "LIMIT" the looting, not STOP it? Really?
