COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - The devastation in Southeast Texas is unprecedented as Hurricane Harvey made landfall in the Lone Star State over the weekend and dumped over 50 inches of rain across large portions of the area.
With South Carolina no stranger to hurricanes or floods, many of you are beginning to wonder how you can help in the recovery process.
Two groups associated with the United Way of South Carolina are already en route to Texas.
SBP and Reach Global Crisis Response are bringing help.
"SBP will deploy a team of AmeriCorps members and staff to Texas on Wednesday to support immediate needs for families impacted by Hurricane Harvey," Joey Wallace, spokesman for the United Way of the Midlands, said.
The City of Columbia, in conjunction with surrounding counties and the University of South Carolina has established the Columbia Relief Fund. The website has a list of places to drop off donations or where you can send monetary donations.
Anyone wanting to donate to go directly to the City of Columbia Public Works facility (2910 Colonial Drive) from 9am-5pm.
