A year later, North Carolina is still recovering from Hurricane Florence

“Many families will feel the effects of this disaster long after the storm has passed, and we will continue to support them in any way possible in the weeks and months ahead."

A year after Hurricane Florence touched down in the Carolinas, leaving record-breaking flooding and massive displacements in its wake, some damages have still not been resolved. The Chapel Hill area experienced significant and unexpected rain, causing short-term flooding and long-term ramifications, such as property loss and water damage.

While repair efforts are still ongoing, the state recognizes that they must also sink resources into preparing residents in at-risk areas for future weather emergencies.
