Finding affordable child care in Chapel Hill has proven to be nearly impossible for many working parents, and Town resources are stretched to the limit.
In the wake of Hurricane Florence, affordable housing complexes around Chapel Hill were subject to some of the worst flooding. Residents came back to damaged apartments, but because of housing costs, they don't have the option of immediately relocating. “I don’t know what I’m going to do,” said Frankie Fuller, a 61-year-old Camelot Village resident. “I can’t stay there; (my apartment) is demolished. The only thing I might be able to save is my fishing box.”
Hurricane Florence broke the North Carolina record for rainfall during a tropical storm, beating the previous record of 24.06 inches set by Hurricane Floyd in 1999. Chapel Hill received 6.5 inches of rain between noon on Sunday and noon Monday. In a Monday afternoon briefing, Gov. Roy Cooper urged citizens to practice caution as the state deals with the effects of the hurricane's passing. “My most important message is first: for many parts of North Carolina, the danger is still immediate,” Cooper said. “Flood waters are rising as rivers crest, and they will for days.”
