OCT 8, 2016 – HURRICANE MATHEW FLOODS MUCH OF RALEIGH

With Hurricane Mathew dumping up to 16 inches of inches of rain over parts of NC, Raleigh and Wake County was flooded with 9 inches of rain and strong winds, resulting in multiple calls for wires down, drivers stuck in flooded roadways, and trees down over the roadway.

As the winds increased, so did the call volume throughout the county.  Wake New Hope Fire Department answered 18 calls for service between noon and 11pm, including one for a tree that had crashed into an occupied house on Wedgewood Dr.

During the storm, Station 1 maintained staffing for Engine 1 & Rescue 6, and Station 2 had crews staffing Engine 4, Rescue 14, Brush 7, Car 20 & Car 3.  Deputy Chief Price set up a mini Emergency Operations Center at station 2, coordinating all the calls in our fire district, as well as updating the County EOC and emergency management with updates regarding roads that were blocked by downed wires or flooded out roadways.

Thankfully, no major injuries were reported by any of our residents, and Duke energy crews are working diligently to restore electricity to those who are without power.
