People hit by Hurricane Matthew and then Florence are preparing for and dreading more rain from Hurricane Michael.

"Let's just hope it dies down and we don't get all this rain," said Angie Davis, who lives on Shem Creek Circle in Socastee.

Her neighbor is also trying to stay positive ahead of more rain and wind.

"The only thing I can do is make sure everything is tied down and hope for the best," said Vili Schwenke.

His home was also destroyed by Matthew and Florence.

"Mother Nature, when she's mad, she's coming. There's nothing we can do about that," said Schwenke.

Helping them through the disaster is a man whose own home is in a disaster zone in Clearwater, Fla.

"We're kind of used to it, being in Florida, but it is a concern because my family is back there," said Victor Floener, who volunteers through Samaritan's Purse.

How he's working through the worry: "God gives me the power," said Floener.

So he can power through and get people like Angie Davis back in her home.
