Resilience Planning

Resilience Planning

The South Carolina Office of Resilience is responsible for developing and implementing a Strategic Statewide Resilience and Risk Reduction Plan. The Plan will identify major flood risks around the state and potential losses that could occur as a result of extreme weather events. The Plan will provide strategies for local governments to implement resilience into their communities in order to mitigate potential flood risks.

SCOR has developed a Draft Flood Vulnerability Assessment for South Carolina, available for review and download below. We welcome public comment and questions – scroll down to find a link to submit comments and questions on the Draft Flood Vulnerability Assessment.

Flooding Survey

SCOR continues to seek input from citizens around the state about their experiences with flooding in order to better inform the Resilience Plan. Citizens are encouraged to complete this survey to share details about flooding in their areas, and to encourage their communities to complete the survey as well. View the dashboard to see a live report of survey responses collected so far.
