Hurricane Florence – Horry County Recovery

About our Horry County Repair Project

Hurricane Florence made landfall near Wrightsville Beach, NC as a Category 1 Hurricane on Sept 14th, 2018. The low category led to a public impression of a less severe event, but the hurricane was recorded at 350 miles wide and hung over the Carolina’s for days after it made landfall, allowing the storm to dump record-breaking amounts of rain. Rivers and creeks continued to rise as the days went on causing widespread flooding not only in North Carolina but in South Carolina as well.

After providing months of response work, NECHAMA is now assisting families with repairs to their homes in the wake of the storm.
