Lee's Landing families start assessing damage

CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - Nearly three weeks since Horry County's historic flooding, folks in Lee's Landing are just now starting to clean up.

"It's not easy, but it's got to be done, said Sean Quick.

Some homeowners say the roads finally dried out Wednesday, and many families made the trip in to see the damage. Quick was hauling a Shop Vac into his father-in-laws home. Quick actually lives off Waccamaw Drive, but spent his Wednesday night helping cleaning up water and debris that made it inside.

"Once we get everything cleaned up, assess the damage, haul off a lot of stuff that got wet and turned into trash, we start over, Quick said.

He says his father-in-law and others around Lees Landing are no stranger to flooding, so there are no hard feelings.  

For many, it's become a routine as simple as wait, assess the damage, and go back to living.

He says it's not convenient, but it's what you sign up for on the banks of the Waccamaw River.

That's life on the river, that's all I can say, he said while laughing. They're fun when they're not flooded, and rough after the flood."

While Horry County has moved to Operating Condition 5 (OPCON5), police will continue to monitor security checkpoints at neighborhoods like Lees Landing.

The Department of Natural Resources will also help police patrol the Waccamaw River.
