NICHOLS, S.C. (AP) - More than two hundred volunteers are working in storm-ravaged Nichols this weekend.

The Morning News of Florence reports (https://bit.ly/2gNzK9I ) that the volunteers from across the state arrived Friday for a two-day project to clean out homes damaged by Hurricane Matthew.

The small town was devastated by the Hurricane and the flooding in its aftermath.

Disaster response coordinator George Olive says the work includes tearing out walls and floors damaged by mildew so that people can rebuild and move back in.

Harriet Clark is from Myrtle Beach First United Methodist Church. She said that seeing the damage first-hand is eye-opening and that she’s happy to help other people.
