Christian love in action: ERT volunteers wrap up work after double-whammy hurricanes

By Billy Robinson. For two months, more than 160 volunteers worked about 3,800 hours providing Christian love in action to survivors of Hurricanes Florence and Michael, many of these survivors in dire need of help. Hurricane Florence made landfall Sept. 14 near Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina, then moved inland toward South Carolina, and Hurricane Michael swept up from the Gulf Coast and impacted South Carolina as a tropical storm Oct. 11. While the storms themselves caused problems, flooding in the aftermath was far worse. Now, volunteers’ early response work is largely ending as the South Carolina Conference of The United Methodist Church shifts into recovery mode.
