Advisory: Governor McMaster lifts evacuation for Beaufort County barrier islands. Restricted access to Harbour Island causeway.
This morning South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster lifted the evacuation order for the barrier islands of Beaufort County: Hilton Head Island, Daufuskie Island, Harbour Island, Hunting Island and Fripp Island. There is damage to the causeway/roadway on the north end of the Harbour Island bridge, which will result in temporary restricted access to Harbour, Hunting and Fripp Islands. A roadblock is in place while South Carolina Department of Transportation officials inspect and repair the damage. Only those with Sheriff’s Office Emergency Management Division issued reentry passes and residents with identification indicating they do live on Harbour, Hunting and Fripp Islands will be allowed entry. Overall conditions in Beaufort County are good. Our thoughts are with you and others impacted by Hurricane Irma throughout the Southeast. Thank you for your continued patience; we l ook forward to the return of our residents and guests.
