Hurricane Florence hit land in North Carolina on September 14, 2018. The rain from the storm at some places was over 30”. All of that rain water went into the rivers which flow through South Carolina to get to the Atlantic Ocean. Conway, SC experienced their flooding event about 10 days after the storm passed. Many homes were flooded with several inches to several feet of water in the living space of their homes.
MDS Volunteers will be staying in a house across the street from First Baptist Church of Conway. Work will initially be focused on cleanup, and will transition to repair work once the houses dry sufficiently from the flooding.
