GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (AP) — Gov. Nikki Haley is in Goose Creek as part of an effort to help people impacted by historic flooding get assistance.

Haley is spending some time in Goose Creek on Wednesday at the Goose Creek Community Center.

At the Team South Carolina event, organizers say flood victims can find out what resources are available to them as South Carolina recovers from the flooding.

People can sign up for financial assistance, apply for disaster loans and learn about repairing and flood proofing their homes. They can also get information about health care services from the Department of Mental Health and the Department of Health and Human Services.

Free tetanus shots and well water testing kits are also available. Similar events have been held elsewhere across the state.
