Clean up after this week's winter storm continues as State Agencies start to add up how much the storm cost South Carolina.


The Federal Declaration of Emergency will allow all State and Local agencies to be reimbursed for 75% of the cost of the storm.

For example Anderson City uses a sand- salt mixture on icy roads that costs $40 per ton, but because FEMA will cover 75% the City can get reimbursed for $30 of that cost.

Insurance companies are also anticipating an increase in claims. Russ Dubisky, the executive director for the South Carolina Insurance News Service says so far $15 Million worth of claims had already been filed in South Carolina. He estimates that number will increase.

Road crews will also deal with the damage incurred by all the snow and ice, and the plows scraping the streets.

SCDOT's upstate offices expect there will be more attention paid to patching potholes than normal.

You can help by reporting a pothole. Just call the district office.


Below are the numbers for Upstate SC DOT offices:

Greenville Maintenance: 864-241-1224

Spartanburg Maintenance: 864-587-4725
