Hurricane Dorian - Update 9.5.2019 with Update as of 3PM
Please note that Governor Henry McMaster has lifted the evacuation order as of 3PM today for Jasper, Beaufort and Colleton Counties.
As noted earlier, there has not been enough time to respond to damage around the communities so enter at your own risk and please be careful.
Also remember to report damage to Dorian@IMCHHI.com.
Please CLICK HERE for important facts from the Town of HHI this morning.
We are still receiving reports of tropical storm wind gusts, and it is not safe to be outside yet. Once it is deemed safe and we are able to get teams to each community (likely tomorrow and Saturday at the earliest), we will be there to assess the damages and start clearing trees from roadways, walkways and parking areas. The clearing and cleanup process will take well into next week and possibly longer. Dangerous leaning trees, hanging limbs, etc. are likely and will take time to address.
Please be very careful when returning to your community and keep your distance from crews that will be working on the cleanup efforts. If you notice any storm related damages, please report them to Dorian@IMCHHI.com. That is the fastest way to reach us since our managers will be in the field assessing damage and will not be able to check emails and voicemails and return those in a timely manner. Again, please report storm related damages to Dorian@IMCHHI.com and bear with us through this recovery process.
Be safe in your travels and while returning to your homes and communities over the next several days.
