U.S. Army Reserve assists sheriff's office after Hurricane Matthew
The Lenoir County Sheriff’s office is using an underutilized U.S. Army Reserve Center in Kinston, N.C., after Hurricane Matthew flooded the courthouse basement in early October. The sheriff’s office reached out to the 81st Regional Support Command who owned the center at the Kinston airport. Through the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012, U.S. Army Reserve Defense Support of Civil Authorities and Stafford Act (Disaster and Emergency Act), the sheriff’s office was able to use the facility to continue to serve the citizens of Lenoir County.
