The rain has stopped in Columbia, South Carolina, but the clean up and recovery process is far from over. Adelaide Kirk with the West Central Georgia American Red Cross Chapter is urging people from the Columbus area to help.
She said the clean up process is just beginning as the flood waters are starting to recede. She said the best way for people to help in the Chattahoochee Valley is to donate money. This can be done online or by stopping by the local chapter.
“They still need food, lodging and shelter and those kind of things and replacement for medicines and homes that were completely destroyed. It will be weeks upon weeks if not months before they can get in there,” Kirk said.
There are 23 Red Cross volunteers from Georgia helping on the ground in the Carolinas. The local chapter has a team on standby ready to go help if they are needed.
