We may be relocating to Elizabeth City soon. I'm trying to figure out the whole flooding thing, but just can't seem to find a flood map that I can understand (yes, tried FEMA). SO, is there someone who actually lives in EC, who can tell me how I'm supposed to figure out which parts of the town are prone to flooding? I'm going to rent a house at first, but I certainly don't want all my belongings ruined due to a flood. Can you give me specific neighborhoods or areas that go underwater when a hurricane passes by or during heavy rains? I would sooooo appreciate it, thanks!

I don't live in EC but I work up that way and have been up in that area after storms. I don't think really anything except right along the waterfront in EC flooded in any hurricane that I can remember. Bigger issue with that past couple of hurricanes has been the downed trees which caused power to be out for quite some time. Honestly in all of the hurricanes I have been in only Floyd really flooded things major on the coast (Fran nailed Raleigh pretty hard. Most of then cause minor flooding along the coast and in Wilmington and overwash on the islands. IN EC the nor'easters actually cause more damage than hurricanes and even then most of the damage is on the ocean side.

Thanks for asking, but no. We've moved already and have been in EC for a few months now. We're quite near the river, but no flooding to speak of, and overall we are generally pleased with the area and the people we've met have been uber-friendly.
