Duke Energy just released the warning below with an update and caution due to yet another storm that arrived today. Due to our unusually high amounts of rain and snow, our Lake Norman water levels have been unusually high this past month. 100′ is full pond so at 98.6 we have some wiggle room but based upon the Duke Energy warning below, we can expect increasing lake water levels for the next few days at least. To get an idea of what it looks like when Lake Norman is a “full pond” I took this photo a few years ago when it was at full pond and as you can see even the dock is slightly under water!
Here is the official update from Duke Energy from today, January 5th.
