South Carolina Flooding
How state government stepped out, and FEMA stepped in
Communities across South Carolina have been slammed with catastrophic, life-threatening flooding throughout the weekend of October 3rd, 2015 - October 4th, 2015.
Some of the hardest hit areas recorded rainfall amounts higher than 20 inches. Major roadways were closed across the state and Gov. Nikki Haley originally encouraged people to stay home and avoid any unnecessary travel.

FEMA provided money for temporary housing; rental assistance; emergency home repairs; personal property losses; medical, dental and funeral expenses; and other serious disaster-related expenses not covered by insurance.
Certain branches of FEMA helped go door to door and repair houses that had been harmed in the flooding.
