Around three am, on Monday 13, 2020, an EF 3 tornado touched down and ripped through Oconee County. Unfortunately, Seneca Baptist Church was directly in its path. Due to the high winds, a portion of the roof was peeled back, leaving the pews and carpet in the sanctuary exposed to rainwater. Once the tornado stopped, area-wide power outages and water outages left the church members stuck on how to repair the damage.
The first step was to make a call to SERVPRO of South Greenville County. Once our team arrived, work immediately began. They placed several generators and installed power distribution boxes to run equipment in the sanctuary. Our crew members quickly realized we needed more equipment to dry the church promptly. We called in our Storm Team to help with the drying process. They brought a trailer load full of dehumidifiers and other drying equipment. Together, we were able to dry the church and make it "Like it never even happened."
