WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - After years of mold issues dating back to Hurricane Florence in 2018 resulted in 150 displaced families, the Wilmington Housing Authority says that no more families are living in area hotels as of Friday, March 31.

Authority CEO Tyrone Garrett, who took the role in May of 2022, highlighted the efforts of the ROTC team, property management and maintenance department, and HCVP department for leading the efforts.

He also recognized the support from the WHA Board of Commissioners along with city and county officials that helped make this happen.
