Here is another note coming in from Langston Wertz Jr. at the Charlotte Observer:
On Tuesday, the S.C. High School League voted to start its football playoffs one week later to allow teams to make up games missed because of Hurricane Florence.

*****Que Tucker, commissioner of the N.C. High School Athletic Association, said there should be a decision in North Carolina about any possible playoff schedule changes by Oct. 1.*****

“We’re still giving our schools enough time to access damages to let us know what they’re dealing with,” Tucker told the Observer. “So for us to come out with anything at this point would be premature. We don’t know the conditions of the many school impacted.”

from Jaclyn Shambaugh at the Fayetteville Observer:
Teams must have three days of practice before playing after being out for five days.

Cumberland County football teams won’t play Friday, Sept. 21, county athletic director Vernon Aldridge said Tuesday evening.

Per NCHSAA rules, football teams must have at least three days of practice before playing after being out for five or more days.

Due to Hurricane Florence, which has caused destruction and flooding across eastern North Carolina, Cumberland County schools have been out since Thursday and are scheduled to be out at least through Wednesday, Sept. 19.

If schools resumes Thursday, Cumberland County teams will be eligible to play as early as Monday, provided teams can practice Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Harnett County schools is also closed Wednesday, leaving its football teams in the same position.
