Posted on October 19, 2015 3:03 am by Robert Joseph Baker

HILTON HEAD ISLAND (AP) — Authorities say sand swept off Hilton Head Island beaches by this month’s damaging rains and storm surges will be more than offset by a $20 million beach renewal project already planned for next year.
The Island Packet reported that Hilton Head’s beaches lost about 160,000 cubic yards of sand to the storms. Town director of projects Scott Liggett says that’s about $1.7 million worth.
The storms carved 13-foot-high cliffs out of the dunes on one beach, and entire stretches of dry sand disappeared in some areas. But Liggett says none of the erosion is considered … Read the rest


The Aftermath: Girl Scout Troop continues helping flood victims

Posted on October 19, 2015 2:02 am by Submitted via Facebook

Girl Scout Troop 329 continued helping flood victims last week by assembling personal hygiene items for families displaced by the enormous storm. During the week, they collected more than 60 items to donate to Clarendon County. The troop had, the week before, gathered donations to assist families displaced by the waters who were staying at the Scott’s Branch High School shelter. Those folks were moved to Camp Bob Cooper Oct. 9. The girls agreed that “there is no greater service than giving back to the very community where you live. To help neighbors in needed is a great feeling.”

Regulators advise of rules for testing of private well water

Posted on October 18, 2015 3:03 pm by Robert Joseph Baker

COLUMBIA (AP) — The state Department of Health and Environmental Control is reminding residents about how it handles testing of private well water since the historical flooding.
DHEC expanded its office hours for bottle pick-up and drop-off in several counties through Nov. 1 to assist residents whose private wells were flooded. But DHEC does not leave bottles at homes and won’t send someone to a home unsolicited.
The agency advises homeowners to call law enforcement if they’re contacted by someone posing as a government inspector or other emergency responder and that person can’t provide adequate identification.
