Duke Energy says it is moving water through the system to help prepare for all the rain.

They are focusing on upper Catawba County, which covers Lake James down to Lake Norman. And lower Catawba County, which flows into Lake Wateree in South Carolina.

Lake Norman will be able to handle all of the extra water moving into the lake because of the recent drought, according to Duke Energy.
