141 Residents From Three Complexes Affected By Flooding
CHAPEL HILL – Nearly 150 residences in three apartment and condominium complexes were damaged or destroyed by Sunday and Monday’s flood waters, according to the Town of Chapel Hill.
Sixty-eight of the 106 units at Camelot Village, 22 of the 124 units at Booker Creek, and 51 units at Brookwood Condominiums sustained water damage.
Chapel Hill transit sent a bus to Camelot Village to assist with transportation to the temporary emergency shelter set up at Smith Middle School. However, only one person used that service.
Cleanup continues Tuesday with more heavy rainfall expected before Wednesday evening. Damage assessment teams are visiting the Village Green Condos, University Mall, and Hillsborough Street on Tuesday.
Orange County Animal Services is also trying to reunite displaced pets with their owners. Photos and updates on the missing animals can be seen on the Animal Services website, but right now Orange County officials have found three chickens, two cats and two dogs with unknown owners.
