Property owners and government crews work to get Florence County's repairs made

FLORENCE COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Work crews are busy getting roads back open, but some roads are going to take longer than others to repair.

“Probably about a foot and a half, maybe a little more,” Tony Moore, owner of Tony’s Body and Mechanics said about his once-flooded parking lot.

The water left inside the console of a car marks exactly how much water flooded Tony’s Body and Mechanics parking lot.

“They were parked in the lowest areas. I have some customer cars in the garage that didn’t get water in them,” Moore said.

 Moore’s cars are not the only property damaged from the once-flooded Pamplico Highway.

“I probably had a half inch in my office. Which is the lowest part of my business,” Moore said.

Moore said it wasn’t until this past Saturday that he could finally was able to get in and start cleaning up and throwing out damaged items.

While people like Moore are trying to establish some sense of normalcy, SCDOT. crews and public works crews are trying to do the same with some of our roads.

While some roads can be repaired with resources on hand, others like Pamplico Highway and Old River Road are going to take time.

Florence County Emergency Management said they’re still assessing the overall damage for the county’s roads, but preliminary results show there is a lot damage.

“We had $2 million in damage that we have in our initial assessment, that’s about 182 homes that we were able to get to,” said Andrew Golden with Florence County Emergency Management.

Assessments will continue through the week. The current estimated dollar damages are expected to change.

    A new court filing from defendants in a case involving the late former Horry County Police detective Allen Large and a defendant identified as “Jane Doe 3” asks the judge for a summary judgement. Those defendants, including former Horry County Police Chief Saundra Rhodes and the supervisors up the chain of command from Large, believe the case shouldn't go before a jury because Jane Doe Three has no case against them.
