Since I'm still in FL and waiting for my house to finish building soon, I'm wondering if Clayton ever experienced flooding in the past? I know Tropical Storm Ernesto is on the way to Raleigh area and we Floridians just got over with it last night. The storm wasn't bad at all, but according to the TV news, the storm has strengthened to 60 mph and more rainfall in the Carolinas area.

I know Crabtree Valley Mall get flooding behind the building and they do have a floodgate to shut it. What about Clayton? I remember seeing a small river near Flowers Plantation and Riverbrook's entrances - will it get flood? Can you be able to get across the small bridge? Any other places to watch out for?

For those of you new to the area...Crabtree Valley Mall is built on a lake bed. And...Crabtree Creek is right there, behind the mall. So...guess its no surprise to us when it does flood.

Those of you concerned about buying a home in a flood plain...don't be. First of all, the seller has to disclose that. Secondly, the lender will discover this if no one happens to mention it. And...the homeowner's insurance folks will discover this, as well.

I know NC has a map of the flood areas but I'm not sure where online it is.

ANY town can get flooding if there's a heavy enough rain....it's where IN the town that you should keep in mind.
Just buy a home on upland and avoid areas near streams and you should be pretty safe.

cakeprincess: Are you part of the growing "halfback" phenomenon?

I've been showing a Boca Raton couple (orig from NY, of course) around Clayton the last couple days.

Oh, and no, flooding is no big problem in the Clayton area.
