Photos: Devastating floods continue in SC weeks after Hurricane Florence
On Sunday morning as I prepared my kayak for a photo mission into a neighborhood flooded by the Waccamaw River, just a few miles from Coastal Carolina, a neighbor reminded me to mind my wake. Some homes where inches from taking in water.
Mind your wake. A photojournalists’ mantra, especially when walking or kayaking through neighborhoods inundated with flat water river flooding. If you shift your weight, even a little, you’ll create ripples, obliterating your mirror image. Patience is key.
For the past two weeks, I’ve been covering the impacts of Hurricane Florence in the state of South Carolina with the Associated Press and Getty Images. By boat, over land, and in air, here is a sampling of what I saw.
