We're up north and watching the storm hit the coast of North Myrtle this morning. We are praying that no major problems result from this storm. If anyone has a chance can you please let us know how this storm has affected your area in regards to flooding? We are interested in relocating down there and have heard rumors of ST. James being prone to floods anytime a storm hits. We are interested in any area from North Myrtle to Wilmington. Thank you and good luck to everyone.

This storm seems to be slow moving, but probably will not cause severe flooding. I am not worried about our location in Sneads Ferry. At worst the creeks will rise a bit.

The majority of St James is not in a flood zone, as I understand. However, some lots along creeks do back up to flood zones, and there is some risk when the mean elevation is 29 feet above sea level. Obviously the flood zone should be part of your due-diligence process. There is a quick way to check the flood zone of an address at the Federal web site www.floodsmart.gov . There are also more detailed maps available at Brunswick County's GIS system.

There is also state level flood zone mapping. Here is the map for Brunswick County: http://fris.nc.gov/fris/Index.aspx?F...neral%20Public If you zoom in on St James, the southern third of St James is in an AE zone.

If there is any flooding it would be from rain. Ana's moving pretty slowly.
