New Jersey National Guard personnel are in South Carolina assisting with recovery efforts following severe tidal flooding and widespread power outages inflicted by Hurricane Irma. Gov. Chris Christie late last week authorized the deployment of Army and Air National Guard personnel, including the crew members of two UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters and an UH-72 helicopter. South Carolina suffered its worst tidal flooding since Hurricane Hugo, tornadoes, hurricane force wind gusts, and downed power lines. There have been at least two storm-related deaths.
