Other members are headed to smaller towns ‚Äúacross the Carolinas‚ÄĚ:
Just spoke to the OG Cajun Navy (there are a lot of splinter groups). They are not currently here in Columbia. They are going to head to smaller towns that desperately need rescue help across the Carolinas. https://t.co/3IsZArFzCO
