Caskets Disinterred Due to Storms and Flooding
If a casket becomes disinterred, please secure the casket and immediately report it to DHEC at (803) 622-7259 or ACC-PLANS@dhec.sc.gov. Once the flood waters recede, the caskets should be reinterred, and this is the responsibility of the cemetery owner. If the remains are exposed, please contact the local county coroner. If you are not trained in the handling of human remains, please do not make contact with the remains out of respect and for health and safety reasons.
