Flooded town in Carolinas due to Hurricane Florence


Flooded town in Carolinas due to Hurricane Florence recovery efforts

At least 42 deaths have been attributed to Hurricane Florence, as of Friday, September 21. In addition, extensive damage to homes and businesses mainly from flooding has been nonstop and is likely to cost billions to clean up, officials say. With the tropical depression now fading, many have started the recovery efforts to clean up and pretty much count their losses.

In a conscious effort to help, Rock Emergency is here in the Carolinas! Based in Rochester, Rock Emergency has over 10+ years of experience in the restoration industry and we’re here to assist and guide you through recovery efforts from start to finish.

Over the next few weeks, our team of experts will remain on the ground in the Carolinas, assisting homeowners and others to clean up, as they try to get things back to order. In a recent article by WHAM,  our Operations Manager, Ryan Pyles, noted that while inside a home in New Bern, North Carolina where Florence left its mark, “You can see how high the water was up, she had a good three to four feet of water roll through, and her whole house is crushed.

All her belongings, anything that was four feet or lower was damaged.” Pyles explained how horrible it is to see what a wreck has been caused by the storm, adding that it's even more heartbreaking to see the distraught families stumbling among flood water and debris. Many people have left their homes due to the flooding and have not yet returned.

We understand that this may not be a pleasant experience for homeowners or businesses affected by Florence and we want to help you as much as we can. Rest assured we understand your frustration and anxiety as, together, we all try our best to help you pick the pieces up and recover from this devastating mess.

“I think people underestimate what the water can really do,” said Rock Emergency Operations Manager Ryan Pyles. “A couple of feet of water rushes in, and a whole foundation could just collapse; walls go down.” (WHAM photo)
