This report reviews the performance of several communities’ Community Rating System (CRS) activities during and after the flooding caused by 1999’s Hurricane Floyd in North Carolina. Using a combination of data collected in the field, data from flood insurance claims, and interviews with local officials and residents, the project team evaluated the impact of eight CRS activities on flood losses. This report will review the performance of several communities’ CRS activities during and after the flooding caused by 1999’s Hurricane Floyd in North Carolina. It builds on the lessons learned from a previous report conducted in 1997 following Hurricanes Bertha and Fran in North Carolina. It is assumed that the reader is familiar with both the NFIP and the CRS. Basic terms and NFIP regulations are not explained. Regulations and programs peculiar to North Carolina are explained.
