What some of the flooding in Chapel Hill after Hurricane Florence looks like
Kyrie and Michael Benton carry food and some of their waterlogged belongings through the grounds of Camelot Village apartments in Chapel Hill the morning of September 17, 2018. Chapel Hill had been seemingly spared the worst of Hurricane Florence but Sunday night into Monday morning saw a downpour of heavy rain that caused flash flooding around the Triangle. Camelot Village has seen flooding in the past but never to this degree, according to Kyrie and other residents of many years. "I lost everything in this flood," Kyrie said. Just as quickly as it flooded, the water began to recede late the same morning and early in the afternoon.
After Hurricane Florence made landfall on Friday, Sept. 14., towns and cities across the state experienced damage, destruction and record-breaking flooding. The Town of Chapel Hill, though not a community that experienced the brunt of the storm, did experience flooding in several neighborhoods.
