I'm not in the Carolinas, but have family around there. From their check ins it sounds like Charlotte has some flooding, but it otherwise ok. Charleston, SC didn't get much effect.

Everything's getting back to normal in the Raleigh NC area. We're just dealing with some flooding, tree damage and some power outages.

If anyone's wants to see more about the storm, they can go to WRAL's website www.wral.com

I'm in Charlotte. Some of the flood prone areas (N. Tryon near downtown) etc have some flooding. Ground is well saturated, but I'm at work. No real issues. Union County is worse

Union county/SC border area. Lots of rain. Our bay window leaked and we have some minor dry wall damage, but that's it. Some nearby roads are flooded.

I took today as a vacation day since school is cancelled and I didn't want to even give the impression that I was realistically going to work from home with a 5 and 7 year old after being hunkered down the last few days. Wifey went to work. At least the ipads kept the girls occupied....they didn't wake me until 9

Wilmington Metro here. My area just got power back after 4 days. Others not so lucky so far. Extreme flooding with most major roads closed at some spots. Most stores are closed and what few might be open have no decent supplies, gas stations are dry, it is going to be a long time cleaning this one up. Local dam broke leaving one community essentially cut off from the highway.

No structural damage to my house though my skylight did develop a slight leak toward the end of the ordeal. Had to move my cars to higher ground at last minute else they would have been lost, especially the G. Water is up to 18-20" in my front yard.

Thankfully everyone I know affected are safe- either through evacuation or otherwise. Like I said, it is going to be a long recovery- and now Trump announced he is coming. Well, I could always use a few extra rolls of paper towels!

The worst part of my hurricane experiences have been extended power outages. Glad you're okay.

Was texting with a friend in Richmond, VA. She said the worst part of her hurricane experience this past week was her kids not having school.

East side of Charlotte had some flooding, but nothing crazy. Newer neighborhood = a lot less stuff to break. By mid-monday our street looked like nothing happened. :
Glad everyone is doing alright!
