S.C. Disaster Response assessing Tropical Storm Michael damage

Disaster Response leaders and volunteers from the South Carolina Annual Conference are out assessing neighborhoods as the remnants of Hurricane Michael leave the state.

As needed, specially trained Early Response Teams will deploy to help clear downed trees, place tarps on damaged roofs and help clean up any other damages caused by the storm, which entered South Carolina as a tropical storm after coming ashore on the Florida panhandle as a category 4 hurricane.

T.S. Michael brought heavy downpours, gusty winds and localized flooding to the state, with some areas reporting as much as five inches of rain.

What churches should do after the storm

What you can do to help

Pray

  • For the safety and recovery of those affected by the storm.
  • For the safety of first responders and others working with survivors.
  • For the safety of volunteers helping with clean-up efforts.
