Response to Charleston Floods

People across Charleston awoke Monday morning to record setting rainfall. For most people it was an inconvenience during their commute, but for others the flood waters threatened to disrupt more than just their morning drive.

Three communities in the area were affected by the flood waters and many people were forced to evacuate their homes.  The Red Cross was there to meet the immediate needs of those affected by the Charleston flooding.
