Monte Lemmon lives below the Lake Dogwood dam near Fort Jackson's eastern border. Lemmon and his family, along with other neighbors, were rescued by boat before his property and first floor of his home were destroyed by what he recalled a rapid rise in the the water. Lemmon believes that if dams didn’t break on the fort, the base released water intentionally at some ponds to prevent the dams from collapsing as the storm raged, and if that was intentional, they should have been warned.
