As the floodwaters left by Hurricane Matthew recede across eastern North Carolina, East Carolina University continues to assist the region in addressing ongoing needs associated with storm damage.
While still concentrating on the flooding's immediate impacts, East Carolina also is looking ahead at the long-term opportunities for service involved in the recovery.
