Charlotteans on social media rallied around a popular local business after it took on raging water during Thursday's floods.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A beloved Charlotte coffee shop and bakery were one of several businesses that were flooded Thursday. 

The Batch House on Bryant Street in Charlotte's Wesley Heights neighborhood took on water quickly Thursday morning as the owner looked on. 

Several posts on the shop's Instagram page shows water surrounding the building, drowning out cars on the nearby street. 

"Material things will be replaced, so we'll be OK," said Cris Rojas Agurcia in a video posted to the shop's Instagram account.

"I'm just blown away by Charlotte," she said as she got emotional. "You guys are such a good community."

Rojas Agurcia has posted pictures of the damage inside on her Instagram page, @thebatchmaker. She noted she will start the clean-up process on Friday.
