Had to cancel visit due to weather. Wondering if these areas were affected by the hurricane and to what extent. Any other higher ground choices to look at when we reschedule in the spring?

Have not heard of any issues in either development. Not sure what you mean by "higher ground choices". Virtually none of BF or CP is in a flood zone, for example. You can look at flood maps here: Flood Risk Information System

I went through Fayetteville last week and there was significant flooding in areas with a lot of traffic signals out. The Wilmington area looked totally untouched. I passed through Waterford Of The Carolina's on the Monday after Matthew and there was no sign of a drop of rain in weeks. There are lots of man-made canals there and they weren't even high, let alone any evidence of flooding.

Elevation alone is meaningless. Elevation is only pertinent when compared to the elevation of the nearest body of water. That is what flood maps do...use them to find properties outside of a flood zone.

That's due to the fact that Wilmington only received about 2 or 3 inches of rain from Matthew.
