Disaster relief work in the western part of North Carolina
has been put on hold.

There was a concern that workers would not be safe if they
continued because of the dangers of snow, ice and temperatures.

approximately 50 volunteers.
When work resumes, Moss asked that chainsaw operators and
those that can clear brush volunteer.
WRAL in Raleigh was reporting that an arctic air mass is
