By Jessica Brodie. The worst is yet to come. Days after Hurricane Florence battered the coastal Carolinas, devastating communities and claiming 32 lives as of the Advocate’s press time, that’s the consensus among disaster response leaders as they prepare for when, not if. While the downgraded storm didn’t do as much tree and wind damage in this state as many had feared, the deluge of water caused flash- and much localized flooding throughout the Pee Dee area. As of press time Sept. 18, disaster response leaders were prayerfully on pause—watching, waiting, staged and ready to respond. Six have died in South Carolina because of the storm: two from carbon monoxide poisoning and several drivers from flood waters or trees.
By Jessica Brodie. What started as a restoration project has become a full-scale catalyst for one United Methodist church in South Carolina, St. John’s UMC, helping members honor their history while invigorating their future.
