Robert Swanteck avoided the destruction Hurricane Florence brought to the North Topsail Beach area. But the damage is still done.

Swanteck owns a house in North Topsail Beach but said mold still hit his home and caused it where he still is not back in it. He hopes to return in three months after the work is complete.

"It's just a slow process," Swanteck said.

His situation is not uncommon. A lot of homes in the area have roof damage and most are out of their property as work is being done to fix what's been broken.
