HURRICANE DORIAN UPDATE #8 (9-6-2019)
The island is open at both causeways, but we still have a checkpoint at Myrtle Avenue and Hazard Street restricting access to the south end. Property owners and residents are being allowed to visit and inspect their homes by foot, but not by vehicle.
Dorian totally over washed the south third of the island, moving up to 3 feet of sand to the Springs Avenue making it impassable. SCDOT has been mobilized and is currently working to clear the sand from the road.
Everyone is working hard to clear debris and sand from the area so it can reopen as soon as possible. We will release further updates on access as they become available.
