The bridge over the creek in our neighborhood flooded today, as Hurricane Florence came through town on Sunday, September 16, 2018.<! — more →

On Friday, July, 20, 2012, I shot a video of a <a href=”https://vanwilson.info/2012/07/great-flood-of-charlotte/">flood at Addison Dr. bridge</a> over McMullen Creek, in Charlotte, NC.

Shortly after I shot this video, the city did a lot of work to make this creek less flood-prone.

I have not seen the creek flooded at this street again until now.

Here is a video of that flood, six years later.
