WHITEVILLE, NC (WECT) – The recent winter storm caused two sewer overflows in Whiteville Thursday.

City officials said an estimated 600 gallons of sewage overflowed from the bathrooms on the property of Short Brothers auto sales in Thursday morning.

The second overflow, involving less than 2,500 gallons, happened Thursday evening from a manhole near Tractor Supply on Love Mill Road.

According to the city, the sewerage was contained and did not reach a tributary stream.
