As many of our listeners know, there was extreme flooding in South Carolina as a result of Hurricane Joaquim. Dams were breached, interstate highways have been closed, at least 17 people are dead, and tens of thousands more are without shelter, power, or drinking water. On the phone, to tell us more about the situation is International Orthodox Christian Charities, US Country Representative, Dan Christopulos. We also have Fr. Thomas Moore, the priest at Holy Apostles Church, West Columbia, South Carolina and a member of the IOCC Emergency Response Network. Listen as they tell us about the current and future needs and how you can help.
