CORRECTION: Due to a production error, an earlier version of this article incorrectly stated in the photo caption that OWASA officials cleaned up Gold Park and that the park is still closed. Hillsborough Public Works cleaned the park, and the park has been reopened. The story has been updated with the correct information. The Daily Tar Heel apologizes for this error.
Orange County was inundated with a deluge of heavy rains over the weekend, causing flooding in a number of areas throughout the county, and forced a few residents to leave properties.
In Chapel Hill, a number of roads, including Estes Drive, Umstead Drive and Cleland Drive were flooding during the storms, said Ran Northam, the community safety communications specialist for the Town of Chapel Hill.
Northam also said residential communities experienced minor flooding, as well, over the weekend. One of these communities included three buildings of Camelot Village near Bolin Creek, where four people left their residences due to the flooding. Other affected communities were Brookwood Condominiums, whose entrance was blocked by floodwaters, but no buildings were damaged.
Northam added these buildings are prone to flooding, pointing out the high volume of rain that fell in a short amount of time.
