Aiken, S.C.--If you're looking for a place to stay in case your house was damaged by the storms, the beds are ready and so are the hot showers.
Beginning at 5:30 p.m., Monday, the American Red Cross opened a shelter for anyone displaced by the storm at Midland Valley High School. They are also offering food at the school gymnasium.
Midland Valley is located on Mustang Drive, in Graniteville.
News 12 talked to the Shelter Manager for Red Cross Monday night who told us how she felt about the storm damage in Aiken county. She told us, "I'm a local girl. This breaks my heart. You hate to see, anyone suffer, but it really hurts when it's the people you know, the places you go, people you go to church with, it's devastating."
The shelter at Midland Valley High School will also be open Tuesday.
They'll then decide on a daily basis on how long the shelter will stay open.
