Month: February 2014

A storm worse than Hurricane Hugo!

“I didn’t know this was going to be in the same realm as Hugo,” South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley said of the storm wreckage that resembled the hurricane that struck in 1989. “To look at these neighborhoods and see the trees down and on houses – to see all of the devastation that’s happened to this community – is terrible.”

Southern Disaster Recovery has been awarded EMERGENCY DEBRIS REMOVAL CONTRACTS for debris removal duties in four of the hardest hit counties of South Carolina. SDR will be working with Emergency Management officials in Williamsburg, Aiken, Barnwell and Riverdale counties. In South Carolina, the state Emergency Management Division estimates that the storm has created a million cubic yards of debris statewide. Officials are still evaluating damage and debris amounts.

The South Carolina Forestry Commission is trying to gauge how much damage the ice storm did to the state’s forests. According to Commission spokesman Scott Hawkins, aerial surveys are underway, and crews are getting “boots on the ground” assessments. But tabulation of the damage over multiple counties is going to take some time.

A Greenville Point of View

In Greenville, South Carolina it is reported that folks are taking the storm aftermath a little more in stride.

According to downtown resident Willy Senza, “Greenville’s beautiful but with a little bit of snow it’s pretty amazing. It adds a little bit of charm.”

Ed Brewer, pastor of Bountyland Baptist Church in Seneca, S.C., had a good line… he said
“My old mountain granny used to call this kind of snow “‘chigger dandruff’” referring to a common name for mites that are a pesky irritant in the South.

Permanent Link to Southern Disaster Recovery is Set to Assist Aiken County in Storm Clean Up Efforts

Southern Disaster Recovery will be a key player in the clean up effort of Aiken County South Carolina in the aftermath of the ice storms that ripped through the state. County officials gathered at a recent county council meeting have already begun to count losses due to the ice storms and all agreed there are some busy months ahead.

South Carolina “Disaster Area” Declaration Official!

President Barack Obama has declared South Carolina a disaster area at Governor Nikki Halley’s request.

Al McClaran and the Team at Southern Disaster Recovery are working with the state Emergency Management Division of South Carolina in 4 counties to clean up the debris from the damaging ice storms of last week. Teams from SDR will be working in Williamsburg, Aiken, Barnwell and Riverdale counties for the next three to four months to process the debris created in the wake of storm PAX on February 12, 2014.

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley recently toured the landscape of Aiken, South Carolina. She said, “Aiken has been completely damaged, but what matters, is that people stay safe and help their neighbors.” Noting that Aiken is a city that takes prides in its stately trees she said “We can put up new trees. We can get the debris off the roads. It’s about lives and making sure we’re taking care of people.” As heavy as the damage was in Aiken, she said she knew it would be worse in Colleton County, where she toured parts of Walterboro. Rural areas of the state have fewer resources than Aiken, she said: “That’s the part that troubles me.”

Keller Kissam, president of SCE&G retail operations, said the storm had been as devastating to the utility’s infrastructure as Hurricane Hugo. It will be next week before most of Aiken County will be cleaned up and power restored, though some areas will take longer, he said.

One coastal South Carolina electric cooperative lost 50 poles in the ice storm, compared to 21 in the last hurricane, officials said.
In addition, forestry officials have said the storm caused more damage than a similar ice storm in 2004. That storm caused an estimated $96 million damage to the state’s timberlands.
