Tropical Storm Florence Update #1
The Town and Charleston County Emergency Management officials are actively monitoring Tropical Storm Florence which forecasters indicate could impact the South Carolina coast next week. The official report from the National Weather Service is that there is uncertainty about Florence’s path and it is difficult to determine what the impact will be.
The Town has been informed by the Charleston County Emergency Operations Center that if the storm continues to track towards the South Carolina coast and increase in intensity, the Governor will consider issuing an evacuation order as soon as Monday for affected coastal communities.
We stress that a decision by the Governor has not been made at this time. We will advise residents promptly should this change.
The Town along with Community Association are working together for advanced preparations in the event that our area would be directly affected. Residents and property owners should monitor the weather service report and Town communications and make preparation to secure their property should the storm become an imminent threat to the community.
You can expect the next update tomorrow at 2:00 p.m.
