Post Date:07/02/2013

The Town of Chapel Hill is continuing its efforts to evaluate areas throughout the town that were affected by the recent floods. Clean-up and relief efforts are being diligently pursued to maintain Town services.

Damage assessment teams worked in the Camelot Village, Booker Creek, and Brookwood Condominium areas. A number of units were declared condemned or damaged: Camelot Village has 68 of 106 units condemned, Booker Creek Apartments has 22 of 124 units condemned, and Brookwood Condominiums has 51 units damaged with water in the crawl space of the unit.

Chapel Hill Transit provided transportation to residents in the Camelot Village area to the established shelter at Smith Middle School. One resident in the area used the transportation provided.

Damage assessment teams will continue their efforts today in following areas: Village Green Condominiums, University Mall, and Hillsborough Street.

We are expecting more rain within the next 48 hours. Please do not try to drive through standing water, nor walk through moving water. If you suspect danger or need emergency assistance, please call 911.

As a community effort, if citizens see areas that look questionable or potentially dangerous, please report these issues. You may email info@townofchapelhill.org or call 919-968-2743.
