South Daytona Hurricane Evacuees Find New Homes Thanks to Nonprofits – Daytona Beach News-Journal | Team Cansler

When Tropical Storm Ian slammed into Volusia County in late September, Catrina McMillan and her 12-year-old son, Christian Hooks, didn’t know where to turn.

“My house is flooded. It had water damage so they condemned it and said it was unlivable so we had to move and then of course my car flooded,” McMillan said Monday.

It was something she’d never been through since moving to South Daytona in 2015 — and something no one had told her how to navigate.

“They didn’t really help us,” she said of the officers who condemned the home she rented. “They just told me we had to move.”
