BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) – Dozens of families in one Brunswick County neighborhood are breathing a sigh of relief after being stranded from the recent storms.

Residents living on Maple Road in Ash said their road washed out early Sunday morning. The dirt road leads to about 18 homes.

Neighbors were worried about who would pay to fix the road since it's not owned by the state.

Residents said this is not the first time they have had this issue. They said the road washed away three months ago and they pooled their money to construct a new one.
