Last Thursday saw more rain fall on our area in a single day in February in 142 years. The South Fork River went on a rampage and crested at more than six feet above flood stage at a monitoring station in Lowell. Flood waters inundated parts of Cramerton and McAdenville closing parks and roads. Here are some scenes in those two towns from the major flooding event. See more high water scenes on page 11.
