Power Outage Update #2
Power Outage Update
Berkeley Electric reports power has been restored to most of the front part of the island including Freshfields. Additional power will be restored incrementally as Berkeley Electric is working on multiple circuits.
They currently have five crews working on the island and field reports indicate the flooding is worse on Kiawah than during Hurricane Hugo. Berkeley Electric indicates they cannot provide a guaranteed timeline and it could be a multi-day event as they inspect equipment.
As of 11:00 a.m., roughly 7,800 Charleston County customers are without power. We will continue update residents as information becomes available.
