Yes, the Pee Dee region in general is very flat. Fortunately, their house is near the top of a gently sloping hill, so they aren't worried much about flooding. They were just planning to create some sort of dam across the garage door, as the property uphill from them flows that direction. They've got their emergency kitchen with the propane grill and Coleman stove setup out in the garage. The weather folk say it could be up to 40" of rain for them this weekend and Duke Power is expecting outages to up to 1-3 million customers. Thankfully they have a small generator and plenty of gas. They're also on a deep well, so with the generator, they can fill their pressure tank intermittently and be fine with drinking water.
