Charlotte leaders continue to urge people not be complacent as they remain concerned about people who live in flood zones.

"We want you in a shelter safe," Mayor Vi Lyles said. "I am more concerned about people who live in flood-prone areas."

There are about 10,000 pieces of property in Mecklenburg County that touch the flood zone, including 4,000 homes that aren't prepared to handle more than 11 inches of rain in a 24-hour period.

In some instances, Charlotte officials said crews went door-to-door to prepare people for potential flooding. They also continue to ask people whose homes are safe to stay inside all weekend.

"Right now, we'd like you to stay off the streets, so we can keep the streets clear and stay home where you're safe," the mayor said.

Charlotte Fire Chief Reginald Johnson said the city is prepared, but people can't let their guard down.

"I hope nobody is becoming complacent about the storm," he said. "I am concerned about the flooding."

Both officials urged people to only call 911 for true emergencies, like flooding. For all other requests for help and questions, they asked people to call 311.

Beyond flooding, falling trees is another concern. Nichole Sanchez, a mother of four, is still struggling to process the damage on her house after a massive branch crushed her Rock Hill home Friday night.

"I hear a loud crash and my youngest comes around the corner and screams, 'Oh My God, the tree fell,'" she said. "It hasn't sunk in yet. It's coming in waves."

The branch landed near her daughter's bed.

"She had a poster hanging above her bed and the tree knocked that off," Sanchez said. "None of us was physically hurt. My youngest had a hard time sleeping last night."
