County to Continue Phone Survey to Determine Residents Still Needing Assistance Due to Storm Damage

The Beaufort County Long Term Recovery Group will continue to conduct a telephone survey of individuals who contacted FEMA after Hurricane Matthew. The purpose of the survey is to determine any unmet needs stemming from the storm damage. The number that will appear on phones with caller ID will be 843-255-1000. The survey will be conducted as follows:

  • Thursday, June 15, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Friday, June 16, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Saturday, June 17, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Residents still in need of assistance should accept the automated call and respond to the survey accordingly.

The information collected will be reviewed by the Palmetto Disaster Recovery Office (PDRO), an affiliate of the South Carolina Disaster Recovery Office (SCDRO) and the state’s case manager, to help PDRO further assess and prioritize the needs of Beaufort County residents.

The PDRO/SCDRO oversees grant programs that focus on rebuilding or repairing homes damaged by severe weather events by managing federal funds available to assist individuals in disaster recovery. The program is managed with the support and guidance of the South Carolina Department of Commerce.
