A few weeks ago, we started the Streets of Charleston Photo Tour. We decided it would be fun to go downtown and explore a different section of Charleston each week and share it here on the blog. South Carolina is experiencing what the news is calling “a once in a millinneum flood” due to historic South Carolina rainfall. If you’ve been watching the news at all over the past few days, you probably know that most of downtown Charleston, along with many other areas in the city are under water due to flooding. The South Carolina coast in general has flooded; South Carolina is in a statewide state of emergency, and Columbia has taken a very big hit as well. I’m talking collapsed roads, houses and buildings under water, and people having to evacuate their homes. Prayers for my beloved state would be greatly appreciated over the next couple of days, as it is still raining and in the days ahead as we all work together to clean up and start clean-ups and repairs.
We will continue the Streets of Charleston Photo Tour when it is safe to venture downtown again, but please keep in mind it will be a very different scene for a while, However, I hope that you will see a visual progression through the weeks ahead. This city has been through so much since the shooting at Emanuel AME Church in historic downtown Charleston in June. We proved then that we were Charleston Strong. In times like these it’s important to remember it’s the people that are the backbone of a city or community, rather than the architectural structures. God always brings a rainbow after the storm and I have a feeling South Carolina has many rainbows in it’s future as we now prove that we are South Carolina Strong.
