Which Carolina?

The state boundary between North and South Carolina got a modern day redraw using GPS and the old border was off by several hundred feet in some areas. It means 93 property owners in South Carolina are now in North Carolina. The original border was drawn in the 1700's but wasn't surveyed again until now. The owner of a store in Lake Wylie says he will likely have to close because he's in North Carolina now where the price of gas is 30-cents higher a gallon and he can't sell fireworks anymore. For other property owners, it'll be a bureaucratic nightmare to change schools, phone numbers, addresses, drivers licenses and even the public officials they have to call to complain about the issue.
