Faces from the Flood: Hurricane Floyd Remembered
Faces from the Flood: Hurricane Floyd Remembered
On September 16, 1999, rainfall from Hurricane Floyd swelled North Carolina’s rivers, flooding tens of thousands of homes, businesses, and communities across the eastern third of the state; taking 52 lives; and causing an estimated $6 billion in damages. Faces from the Flood is a compelling look back at the state’s most destructive natural disaster, conveyed through the words of those who endured it.
Thirty-seven interviews with victims, heroes, volunteers, scientists, and government officials offer tales of dramatic rescues, sorrowful losses, and the quiet determination to survive and rebuild. The story of Floyd is far from over, and North Carolinians must be prepared to face similar storms in the future, warn Richard Moore and Jay Barnes. They conclude with an assessment of the state’s response to Floyd and a discussion of what programs should be initiated, maintained, or strengthened to prepare for future storms.
Through evocative personal stories, maps, tables, and dozens of striking photographs, Faces from the Flood highlights the dramatic impact of Hurricane Floyd. It will serve as a valuable reference for future explorations of North Carolina’s greatest disaster.
