Post Hurricane Matthew Update

Posted by

While Hurricane Matthew left a trail of destruction along the East Coast, Wilmington and Landfall received very minimal damage. Landfall never lost power during the storm partially because Landfall’s utilities and power lines are underground, which is extremely beneficial since Landfall will often have power when other parts of Wilmington lose theirs.

The damage around Landfall mainly consisted of broken tree limbs and minor debris, and was cleaned up in the common areas by Landfall Maintenance. A couple roads were flooded for a day, but Landfall Security made sure any roads that were impassable where blocked off. Both the Nicklaus and Dye Golf Courses are already open to the delight of golfers.

Landfall and Wilmington were lucky to have escaped relatively unscathed from a storm that caused so much harm to the surrounding areas.
