The aftermath of the storm — which some experts say was the most powerful to ever hit the region — left many residents without power, destroying hundreds of homes and causing severe flooding. Many are still without power and other necessary resources.

"We hope this extension of services for South Carolina-based subscribers aids in the crucial need to stay connected with loved ones during this time."
