Meals available to those without electricity in Georgetown Co.

GEORGETOWN COUNTY - Free meals will be provided to those still without electricity in their homes as a result of damage done to utility lines during the winter storm.

The first meal will be available for pickup at noon today February, 17 at Northwest Regional Recreation Center. Dinner will be available tonight at three locations, and three meals per day will be available on subsequent days at three locations until electricity is restored to at least most parts of Georgetown County.

Locations where meals will be available include:

• Ringle Heights Baptist Church, 78 Ruben Ave., Georgetown

• Northwest Regional Recreation Center, 8189 Choppee Road, Georgetown

• Sampit Park, 495 Powell Road, Georgetown.

Meals will be available daily at 8 a.m., noon and 6 p.m. through a partnership between South Carolina Baptist Convention Disaster Relief, the Salvation Army and Georgetown County Government.

There are still more than 6,100 homes in Georgetown County without electricity, and utility companies are unsure when remaining outages may be repaired. Sam Hodge, Georgetown County's Emergency Manager, and his team coordinated with relief agencies to make meals available in the hardest-hit areas of the county.

The Southeastern Baptist Association will also have mobile shower units available at Ringle Heights for use by anyone who wants a hot shower. Towels are provided, but people should bring their own toiletries.

People are asked to share this information with their churches and other groups, and notify any individuals they are aware of who are in need of food due to widespread power outages.

    Summer hasn't even technically started, yet the summer-like heat and humidity will continue to reach uncomfortable levels the next few days. We start off this morning with mugginess in the air. High temperatures reach near 87 along the Grand Strand but easily make it into the low 90s inland. The heat index will feel like 95 to 100 along the coast, but more like 102 to 105 inland.
