Event Details

FPC Raleigh is gathering a team to help our friends down east as they continue to recover from Hurricane Florence. The eye of Florence came ashore on September 14, 2018, on Wrightsville Beach. The five-day rain accumulation made it the wettest tropical cyclone ever recorded in NC. The area’s soils were already saturated from earlier rain, so the 36 inches of rain dropped in this storm caused extensive flooding throughout southeastern NC. While the storm was “only” a Category 1 storm at landfall, its slow westward movement meant that large numbers of buildings experienced roof damage while the rain was falling. Thus, some homes were damaged by rising waters, others by falling waters, and some by both. We will be traveling to FPC-Wilmington the week of 2/11 – 2/15 to help. The work includes primarily removing damaged walls, ceilings, and floors and otherwise preparing homes for reconstruction. You can opt to stay at FPC- Wilmington, at a rate of $10 per night, or make your own arrangements. Dinner will be “on our own”. We hope to have 6-8 participants.

Join us for the week or for a day or 2!
