That's cool. I was going to walk over at some point today and see what it looked like at Ebenezer, but now I can just sit here instead and save myself 10 minutes.

So flood stage (18ft) seems a bit more than normal mall flooding is seen. So whats a normal value that the whole area is under water?

OK so maybe they have bad data as I know the mall has flooded multiple times but theyve only once in the last 10 years listed as above flood stage. Hense my confusion.

I wouldn't say it was "out of nowhere". There was talk about a storm dumping a serious amount of rain on Saturday within the last few days.

The entirety of the local water resource/engineering community licks it lips at the prospect of the City of Raleigh giving enough of a damn to mitigate the Crabtree nightmare........ Gotta pay for Dorothea Dix first tho

It reached moderate flood levels the other night. The record is another 7 feet higher than that (occurred in 1973).

I got some good footage on facebook live. Not sure how to post it. It defintely smelled like fuel under there and all the car alarms were going off as the water was frying the electronics in all the cars.

crabtree VALLEY mall. i mean the built it in a flood plain because it was flat land and cheap. and i'm assuming they got a good deal with the flood insurance company.

It also flooded in 2003 or 2004. Wasn't a tropical storm or anything. Just some ridiculous rain.

My car was one of the casualties. I parked in the deck around 4pm to go to work one day (worked at the mall) and came back to my car around midnight and there was mud up to my car seat inside and out....that wasn't fun to deal with.

they also say that there was little development in the area then, since there has been so much more impervious surface in the area there is more runoff..more runoff = worse flooding

Yea you wouldn't be able to build Crabtree Valley in its current location and elevation today. Wiki is telling me it was built in 1972 (seriously?). I don't think the National Flood Insurance Program got the teeth it needed to disincentivize floodplain construction until a few years later, therefore it is probably grandfathered into the program, meaning subsidized flood insurance rates. As I posted above the city/mall could mitigate the problem significantly but it would be expensive as fuck (flood studies + an ass ton of grading and soil disposal + moving that road behind the mall and probably improving the bridges over the creek).

[Edited on July 18, 2016 at 6:38 PM. Reason : ^higher runoff and ditching the creek also likely playing a role]

Yes Crabtree rises extremely quickly when heavy rains hit. It also falls quickly after it crests.

Craptree? it's the best mall in Raleigh by far. Probably one of the best in the state.

Cary Town Center and South Point mall are also excellent. Not to say South Park and Concord Mills in Charlotte.
