LENOIR — The aftermath of last week's historic flash flooding continues to cause problems in North Carolina, including trapping a deer among fallen trees in a Caldwell County creek. The Lenoir Fire Department reported receiving a call about the animal Wednesday morning and arrived "to find a deer trapped in a log jam and in water," the department wrote on Facebook.

Lenoir is 75 miles northwest of Charlotte. Photos shared on Facebook show the young buck standing in about a half-foot of water in Lower Creek, surrounded by downed trees.
