Perdue Farms operations in the Carolinas are returning back to normal after the torrential rains and wind from Hurricane Florence.

Last week the poultry company closed three of its processing plants in advance of the storm and move chickens from low lying areas.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports that two of the plants are now up and running again with the third ready to restart as soon as the city begins supplying water at the end of the week.

Mountaire Farms’ processing plant in Lumber Bridge North Carolina has already reopened after it was shut down for three days.

And the newspaper reports that Tyson’s Foods said the storm had minimal effect on its live poultry operations in North Carolina and Virginia.
