    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Noise complaints against Charlotte-Douglas Airport are setting records this year.

    Channel 9 obtained the numbers through Aug. 15 and found they are up 80 percent.

    "It's ridiculous. It's gotten worse over the year," said Angie Rogers, who lives near the airport.

    Rogers said the noise has gotten worse over the last six years because the airport is getting busier.

    "More planes. More air traffic. More noise," said Rogers.

    The TSA announced that last month they set a record for the number of people that went through a checkpoint at Charlotte Douglas.

    Rogers has filed three complaints about the noise and she is far from alone.

    So far this year there have been 121,205 noise complaints whereas in 2016 there were 67,793.

    But, there is another side to these complaint numbers.

    About 96 percent of the complaints came from the same 25 addresses.

    That means those people would have to file one complaint every two minutes for eight months straight.

    The airport hosted a roundtable about noise on Wednesday to try and address the growing problem.
