FEMA provides information about flooding, including a site where you can enter an address to see its flood risk. The areas around certain creeks in Chapel Hill and Carrboro are in "flood plains". Anyone selling a home in North Carolina must note on the property disclosure if I house is in a flood zone according to the FEMA maps; however, anyone buying a home should double-check.
The North Carolina Department of Crime Control and Public Safety website has information on tornadoes and other natural hazards.
