On Channel 14 news last week, they showed major flooding last year in homes during rainfall. Does anyone know any more about this and should I be concerned with flooding in general in this development? Thanks in advance.

Check a flood map for any home you plan to buy.

Raleigh even allows building in flood plains under some conditions.

What you probably saw last year was when a tropical storm came through. I think the name was Alberto. There was LOTS of flooding all over the Triangle. The Crabtree Valley Mall was flooded on the first floor, etc. Streets were flooded and closed off. It was a mess!!

Crabtree Valley Mall is built in a flood plain, and would probably flood if they left the sprinklers turned on too long. Other places may take a lot of water to flood, but just not that part of the Triangle.
