According to a school official, Tyrrell County Schools will be closing at noon Thursday due to problems with the town's sewage system.

The official says heavy rains caused the town's sewage system to reach capacity.  School officials made the decision out of concern for the students' safety and sanitation.

Newschannel 12 will continue to gather the facts on this story.
