COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - A photo shared by a South Carolina agency shows that love can weather any storm. 

The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control shared a photo of an elderly couple holding hands in the back of an ambulance. 

An EMS agency from the Upstate took the photo while conducting medical evacuations from a nursing home in Beaufort County, SC. 

"We are grateful for the incredible crews still assisting with safe medical evacuations," SC DHEC tweeted on Wednesday.  

More than 1,700 people have been safely evacuated from healthcare facilities along the SC coast, SC DHEC says.
