The Water Crisis

What it is And How it is Affecting South Carolina

The Floods

The rain may have stopped, but South Carolina is grappling with a host of new concerns. Dam breaks. Billions of dollars in damage. And rivers that still haven't crested.

"We still have to be cautious," Gov. Nikki Haley told reporters on Tuesday afternoon. "The next 36 to 48 hours are going to be a time that we need to continue to be careful."

More than 400,000 state residents were under a "boil water advisory" affecting about 16 water systems, said Jim Beasley, a spokesman for the S.C. Emergency Response Team.

How Can You Help?

We, as a school, will be hosting two different types of drives that will help the people affected by the floods in lower South Carolina. One of the drives that will take place is a Canned Food Drive, which will collect canned food and non-perishable food items. Another drive that will happen is the Baby Drive, which will collect baby food, baby diapers, and baby cloths. All of the items listed can be donated by you students, we will collect any donated item will be collected in the cafeteria under the sign "Flood Drive Items."

They Need YOUR Donations!

All donations will go to the donation facilities located in the lower parts of South Carolina where the floods have impacted most. We will be collecting these items until Wednesday, October 14th, 2015. If you would like to donate any item, there is a table in the cafeteria where you can put your items that you would like to donate. Thank You!

The Floods Water

You may think that since they are in a flood, they should have a huge amount of water. False, all of that water that is flooding the dirty streets, the muddy grass, and the places with trash cans full of garbage is contaminated with mud, dirt, and garbage. That is reason that they need supplies such as water.
