St. Johns Fire District has notified the Town that it has relocated personnel from the Seabrook Island Station. Residents should expect delays in fire and hazard response in consequence of that relocation.
Berkeley Electric Cooperative has not yet informed the Town of a decision to preemptively cut power. The Town will publish that determination when notified by BEC.
Evacuated residents should not attempt to return to the Island until the Governor has lifted the evacuation order and the Town has confirmed that it is appropriate for residents to do so. The Town has established criteria for resident return which include availability of emergency services and sewer and water services and completion of debris removal from the roads within the Town.
