Columbus County: A Series of Disasters

In the last 10 years, disasters like Matthew, Florence, and now COVID-19 have changed the fabric of Columbus County, North Carolina and its community.

Wallyce Todd and Gerry Lenahan work at Community CPR, a nonprofit focused on disaster relief in the city of Whiteville – its county’s seat. They talk about how their county is faring through the pandemic, while still working to support hurricane survivors. Gerry voices concerns over the hurricane season ahead and how it will affect people whose income has been affected by COVID-19.
