From Conference Disaster Relief Coordinator Janice Mann…
Florence update per UMCOR: As the water recedes damage assessments in North and South Carolina have begun. Many areas are still no access due to high water. Affected Conferences are managing their responses locally and will make requests for materials and response teams as they continue their assessments. ERTs in North Carolina are assessing and responding to needs. ERTs in South Carolina started clean up this morning in areas where the water has receded. We ask that those wishing to assist please do not self-deploy or donate unsolicited items.

A reminder that the best way to assist is to donate to UMCOR so that the affected conferences will have access to funds to purchase what is needed when it is needed and materials and supplies and other relief and recovery necessities can be available now and for the long haul.
