HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. (WSPA) — For the past year and a half, the city of Hendersonville has been working on a plan to improve its response to flooding. According to the city's Stormwater Division Manager Michael Huffman, there are several areas that are prone to flooding. 'Henderson County, in general, is pretty flat in comparison to some of the surrounding areas,' explained Huffman. 'Hendersonville, in particular, is kind of in a bowl.' This month, the city installed four radar sensors near waterways that flood frequently.
