Hurricane Irma Update #9 - Dated 9/12/2017

Good afternoon. The evacuation order was lifted this morning and everyone is welcome to return to the island. We have had members of our team survey each community and are in the process of reporting back to your Board of Directors. Most of us are breathing a sigh of relief, but there is still work to do. Some properties in the south Sea Pines area are still inaccessible due to high flood waters and are also without power. CSA and Palmetto Electric are working on these issues diligently. Several communities experienced significant flooding and most properties have a fair amount of debris on the ground. Each landscape contractor and pool service contractor have already been contacted and clea

Hurricane Irma - Update #8 - Dated 9/11/2017

With the worst of the storm past, there are reports of damage throughout Hilton Head Island and the Lowcountry, the majority of which is damage from rising water. For the most part, water and sewer service seem to be intact but there are still several areas that do not have power. Palmetto Electric is also concerned that the high tide this evening around midnight could re-flood certain areas and inundate transformers again. This evening, our first response team visited as many properties as we could and will be visiting more tomorrow to assess the damage. It has come to our attention that the evacuation order may be lifted tomorrow morning, but with the worst of the storm only diminishing la

Hurricane Irma - Update #6 - Dated 9/10/2017

Hurricane Irma has made it’s much anticipated turn to the north and made landfall this morning in the Florida Keys as a powerful Category 4 storm. She is now back out over water and barreling toward the southwest coast of Florida. Although we are somewhat encouraged by the shift of the forecast track slightly to the west, the South Carolina Lowcountry is not out of the woods yet. We are still expected to get tropical storm force winds and most importantly, we are expected to receive a significant amount of storm surge. What makes the surge even more dangerous is the fact that the impact from Irma is currently forecasted to hit right at a higher than normal high tide at midday tomorrow. Pleas
