The 2015 South Carolina Flood Oral History Collection

For residents of Columbia and the many communities throughout the state, the 2015 flood was much more than statistics suggest. The oral histories in this collection begin to humanize the experience of the flood, as residents confronted loss and destruction of homes and businesses, and found support and resilience within their communities. Those willing to share their story are farmers, professors, artists, retirees, web designers, business owners, and more.
