Belhaven Homes Rise to the Occasion

Record #:
Belhaven, located in Beaufort County, was struck by six hurricanes in the late 1990s. Flood waters four-feet-deep devastated numerous homes. To combat this, Belhaven is elevating homes off their foundations. Lail discusses this FEMA mitigation project which has drawn nationwide attention. Officials from as far away as South Korea have come to see what has been done.
