NEW HOLLAND, PA. – In September 2018, Hurricane Florence hit the Carolina coastline as a Category 2 storm with sustained hurricane-force winds of 80 mph and relentless rainfall. While much of the news covered the storm’s impact on the coastline, its effects were also felt farther inland in central North Carolina.

The Abbondanzio family lives in Moore County, 130 miles from the coast, where 13 inches of rain fell. Like many, the Abbondanzios evacuated to a shelter while constantly worrying about the potential for storm and flood damage. The good news was that their 1860’s New England reproduction style home was built with a Superior Walls Xi™ foundation.

Once the flood waters receded, the family returned home and was pleasantly surprised by what they found.
