DAUFUSKIE ISLAND, SC (WTOC) -

Massive cleanup efforts continue on Daufuskie Island in Beaufort County.

Daufuskie is located between Hilton Head Island and Savannah. There are no bridges that connect it to the mainland, so recovery is slow-going.

According to the Daufuskie Endangered Places Program Facebook page, the Freeport Marina Docks on Daufuskie appear to be in good shape. A boat broke away from its storage rack during the storm and landed on the concrete pier.

Freeport lost a lot of trees, but most of the important buildings here were spared with the exception of the Marsh Tacky barns.

The horses are all safe and sound but in need of help. Water and supplies are being brought in by barge or boat. The Marsh Tacky horse is rare breed with historical roots to the island.

A Go Fund Me account has been created to help the Daufuskie Marsh Tacky Society, as well as a link to a Daufuskie Disaster Fund receiving donations to aid the clean-up efforts on the island.
