Filling Sandbags for Georgetown County
Emergency Operations Planner Andrew Fleming, Louisville District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, operates a hydraulic sandbag filler in Horry County, S.C., in support of Hurricane Florence flood risk management efforts underway across the region here, Sept. 16, 2018. The sandbagging system can generally fill up to 500 sandbags per hour and greatly enhances USACE’s ability to provide sandbags during natural disasters. Since arriving in S.C., Fleming’s has worked with the local Army National Guard units to fill more than 5,500 sandbags since his arrival following the storm. When disasters occur, USACE teams and other resources are mobilized from across the country to assist FEMA, state and county efforts regarding flood response. (U.S. Army photo by Edward N. Johnson)
