Evacuation Order Lifted | Reentry Procedures
Governor McMaster has lifted the evacuation order for Charleston County. The Town of Kiawah has been assessed for damage, and Town/KICA crews are currently clearing roads.
Access for residents and non-resident property owners will begin at 10 a.m. tomorrow (Saturday September 7). We caution all returning property owners that road clearing operations will still be underway, and some streets may still have limited access at that time. Returning residents and property owners will be expected to abide by any temporary roadblocks, restrictions, or detours while crews complete their work.
The Town will release trash and debris collection schedules as soon as they are finalized. Later today, KICA will separately communicate any restrictions related to commercial access over the weekend.
Berkeley Electric crews are currently on the island working to restore power. We expect power to be restored for most of the island over the next 24 hours, though it will restored in different parts of the island at different times.
You can expect the next update today at 2:00 p.m. If there is breaking news, we will release that information before our scheduled communication.
