Officials Rescue Drivers Stranded by Historic North Carolina Floodwaters

Historic rainfall caused roadways in North Carolina to flood on Thursday, November 12, stranding vehicles and making some streets completely “impassable,” local reports said.

More than four inches of rain fell in less than 24 hours in the Charlotte area, local media reported.

Harrisburg Fire shared this footage from Stallings Road, where crews rescued a stranded driver.

The Charlotte Fire Department said on Twitter that 143 people had been rescued and that the flooding had forced the evacuation of a charter school. Two people died and three were missing from the Hiddenite Family Campground, according to local reports. Credit: Harrisburg Fire via Storyful
