Thanks for coming to Oakhurst AGAIN due to Spectrum’s inability to avoid hitting all sorts of lines as they lay cable ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿป‍โ™€๏ธ We appreciate you!

Spectrum came to caldwell station and did the same thing! Hopefully they have to pay the city for all this carelessness!

They have flags and paint markers everywhere and they still hit them. ๐Ÿคฆ‍โ™€๏ธ

Jesse Posey this what I was talking about.

Those 3rd party contractors could careless on what they damage, all they care about is getting the fiber in the ground as they get paid by the foot. If Spectrum would start fining their contractors for each damage, then this might slow down some. If everyone would go express their displeasure and concerns at the monthly Char-Meck Utilities Commission Meeting then maybe this would help hold Spectrum accountable.

Thank you for everything that you do for us

Thank you for all that you do for usโค๏ธ

Thanks for all you do for us

URGENT:

According to Charlotte Mecklenburg Emergency Management, the siren you are currently hearing was a regularly scheduled silent test but there was a malfunction in the system and the siren continued. There is NO EMERGENCY. No need to call 911 or report this issue. ALL IS WELL.

What should the schools have done as it wasn’t scheduled. Do they have a plan??

I think the problem is that a new message wasn’t sent out explaining it was a mistake or accidental activation. I am personally on Meck County alerts for email and text and I got nothing until the panic reached a level that people were calling and posting asking for answers. It’s an obvious break down with our emergency management. Hopefully lessons learned and better plans going forward but it’s wasn’t a citizen issue it was a Duke Power and Meck County EM issue.

I believe the community is in need of further education. This proves we are not well enough informed.

Their website says 1/11 was supposed to be a test day. Guess they didn’t check their calendar. ๐Ÿคฆ‍โ™€๏ธ

Twitter and their website said their test was 1/11. Tried calling the town and non emergency police line and all got voicemails. I guess everyone else was too.

If it were a true emergency, what would we do?

As long as that’s the only “malfunction”! ๐Ÿ˜ณ Thanks for the update!

Where do we go to get the iodine pills? And what is the protocol for evacuation?

Thank you so much for the prompt update!

Earlier this morning, Cornelius, Town of Davidson, NC -- Town Hall Fire Department, Mooresville Fire-Rescue, and Mt Mourne Fire Department were dispatched to a lake incident near Ingersoll Rand at the Iredell/Mecklenburg County line. Mt Mourne Engine 1 and Davidson Engine 1 arrived and were able to locate a hunting boat that was flipped upside down with 3 victims and a canine in the water hanging onto the boat approximately 125 yards off of the shore. Voice contact was made from shore and confirmed that all occupants were accounted for. Mooresville launched their boat from Transco Road and made their way to the vessel. Cornelius sent 2 rescue swimmers via Mooresvilles boat into the water to make contact with the victims and the canine and assist them all back onto the rescue boat. The victims were transported back to shore and were treated by Iredell County EMS - Troutman. This incident is being investigated by Iredell County Sheriffs Office and NC Wildlife Resources Commission. ... See MoreSee Less

Is the dog ok?

Thank you for posting. I saw the emergency vehicles on my way to work and wondered if everyone was okay. Great work. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Such a shame. A huge, dangerous body of water that can turn deadly in a minute. I’ve begged all EMS and Wildlife to study that part of Lake Norman and get a game plan before it’s too late and someone really gets hurt or worse, killed.

Great job everyone!!

Grotto know everyone is ok and nice to see multiple departments working toget

Great job!! Glad everyone is ok!

Glad all are safe thank you for the first responders

Thanks for the wonderful response ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ

Thank you for always being there for the community!

Great work!

It sounds like the scene was under control from the start. Victims were okay. Another professionally handled incident. Congratulations to all participants.

I watched the Cornelius Firetruck from my pier near Langtree & new it must be serious if they were traveling up this way! Good job to all first responders! ๐Ÿš’ ๐Ÿš‘ ๐Ÿš“

Excellence in training, cooperation, and preparation made a difference in lives today! Thank you for the job you do!

Great work

Great job!

Great Team Work.

Thank you for all that you do!

Support your first responders. You will understand if you have ever called 911

๐Ÿšจ๐ŸšจHeads up!!๐Ÿšจ๐Ÿšจ

Our area is currently under a tornado warning.

A tornado warning means that a tornado has been sighted or indicated by weather radar. There is imminent danger to life and property. Move to an interior room on the lowest floor of a sturdy building. Avoid windows. If in a mobile home, a vehicle, or outdoors, move to the closest substantial shelter and protect yourself from flying debris. Warnings are issued by your local forecast office. Warnings typically encompass a much smaller area (around the size of a city or small county) that may be impacted by a tornado identified by a forecaster on radar or by a trained spotter/law enforcement who is watching the storm.

Please take a few minutes to fill out the Town of Cornelius FY24 Budget Survey.

Please take a few minutes to fill out the Town of Cornelius FY24 Budget Survey.We'll keep it short and sweet - the FY24 Budget Survey is out now, and it's the best way to let your Town Board, Mayor, and Manager know what matters most to you.

The survey is simple and will only take a few minutes to complete. Rank your priorities on a scale of 1 to 10, and if you want to go the extra mile, there are five *brief* (we mean it) questions about how the Town can best tailor the budget to meet your needs and expectations.

The survey will be available until Friday, January 13. Share it with your friends, family, coworkers, and anyone else you know who lives in Cornelius. We want to hear from everyone so that the next budget reflects what real people really want.

Fiscal year 2024 will run from July 2023 to June 2024.
