Evacuation Order Lifted
Governor McMaster has lifted the evacuation order affecting Kiawah Island. There are no additional restrictions to residents returning to the island.
All public safety personnel are on the island, and all public services (water and electric) have continued to operate without interruption.
Sheriff Deputies will no longer be restricting access at Betsy Kerrison once KICA security establishes operations at the main gate.
All Kiawah Island roads are passable, although there is, and will continue to be, some minor debris on our roads. KICA will communicate directly to residents any additional information concerning road conditions or clean-up activity.
All commercial businesses, including those at Freshfields, remain closed.
If you are intending to return to Kiawah today or early tomorrow, there is still significant weather on many routes to the coast, so plan accordingly.
Mayor, Town of Kiawah Island
