West Monroe Man Back Home After Helping Out Florence Victims
"It feels good to be home."
And there's no place like home for Brandon Bell.
He's back after spending roughly a week in the Carolinas.
"Trying to get settled in and unpacked," said Brandon Bell.
Bell provided aid through his non-profit "Operation Never Stop", an organization that helps with natural disaster response.
This is the group of volunteers who went with him.
They went wherever they could....and rescued whoever they could.
"Families, children, pets. You know that was the main thing."
Some of the roads there, nearly impassable.
Even the way to Wilmington, was cut off by water.
"It was pretty intense trying to make our way in. There were some vehicles stalled already."
In North Carolina, Bell went through some rough waters, even levels that are so high, that they went up to the hood of his car.
"So we kind of pushed on."
And the whole experience: surreal.
"There's a lot of raw emotion involved in those moments."
The strangers he rescued, thankful to him.
And if he could it again, he would.
"Yeah that's what we do man, absolutely."
