With the effects of Hurricane Florence on Charlotte’s doorstep, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services has just added 250 more locations to official Mecklenburg County Flood Map.
The county has been working over the past 5 years to update the flood map based on new development and water flow patterns around our city.
1,700 letters will be sent out this Friday to all newly affected properties, but due to the incoming hurricane, the county decided to send out a press release ahead of time.
There is now grant money available for all affected property owners.
Check to see if your home is one of the newly affected properties by searching on the county’s map here.
