MONCKS CORNER, S.C. – (Monday, October 17, 2022) – Berkeley County Emergency Management Department is working to secure disaster recovery funding from state and federal agencies for residents impacted by Hurricane Ian last month.
County Emergency Management officials are in the process of requesting assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and other federal agencies. Berkeley County is also partnering with the state for other funding options for storm aid.
Berkeley County residents are still urged to continue reporting storm damage via our online portal HERE.
Reporting storm damage is critical to helping Berkeley County staff gauge the extent of damage across the County and report the findings to state and federal officials. These reports will determine the appropriate federal and state funding for damage caused by the storm.
Citizens can also dial 211 for information on related resources, such as volunteer support through local Volunteer Organizations in Active Disasters (VOAD).
