LINCOLNTON, N.C. – The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office Drone Team assisted the City of Cherryville and Gaston County Emergency Management from May 20, 2023 to May 22, 2023 with aerial mapping in the aftermath of the recent storm that hit the area.
The team used multiple drones to fly a number of missions to cover approximately 2,000 acres in the area of damage.
Officials will use the overviews of specific areas to determine the extent of the damage by comparing it to previous maps. The storms hit the Cherryville and Gaston County area on May 16, 2023.
Problems With Our Lincoln Herald Email Link: We apologize to those readers who had signed up for our free daily email with links to our latest articles. You haven't been receiving that email recently. The company that was handling sending out the daily emails with links to our latest articles failed us. After many talks with them and other companies, we have decided to enter into a new agreement with another company that will provide the platform for the Lincoln Herald as well as other services including sending out those emails.
For now, we have no way to send out the emails. When the new provider's services are in place (over the next few weeks) we'll ask our readers to sign up for the emails again; they will still be a FREE service. The new provider has also promised to improve our website, especially the photos we post (which always looked terrible when they are copied to Facebook).
Our new look is coming soon!
In the meantime, you can still read all our articles for free on our website https://www.lincolnherald.com/ and we will continue to post links to them on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/LincolnHerald.net, and Twitter @LincolnHerald20.
Thank you for reading the Lincoln Herald.
