My thoughts and prayers go out to the residents Carolina Forest and those impacted by yesterday's fire. I would also like to recognize those heroes, especially our first responders, who put their own well-being at risk to help others.

The Red Cross has set up a shelter at Ocean Bay Middle School for those residents who were forced to leave their homes. To ensure that all residents are accounted for, if you are a Windsor Green resident who stayed elsewhere Saturday night, please call 843-903-8420 to check in with the Red Cross. The Red Cross also set up a hotline for any people affected by the fire: 843-477-0020.
