Ravenel Associates is monitoring Hurricane Dorian. The Governor McMaster has issued a mandatory evacuation for all of the South Carolina coast line beginning at 12 noon, today. Lane reversals of I-26 will begin at noon.

It is recommended owners and residents take the time now to secure all outdoor furniture and decorations. We recommend you bring all items such as grills, chairs, tables, and decorations including items from the screened porch into your home. If you use a rental company, you may want them to assist you with this.
Please continue to monitor the local news. We encourage you to be alert for any announcements you may receive from the local weather stations or from other agencies such as NOAA (National Hurricane Center) Weather Radio. In the Charleston area, the frequency for the NOAA is 162.550-162.450. While the television station is easier to see and listen to, if a storm approaches power usually goes out and radios are the way to go! Just make sure you have plenty of charged batteries. South Carolina Emergency Management Division (scemd.org), has an excellent 14 page guide with information as to the evacuation routes for your area, phone numbers for emergencies and what you need to prepare and/or purchase if you are staying in the area. Charleston County’s website is useful for determining road closures and openings.
The landscapers have been contacted to turn off the irrigation should the need arise. This ensures water does not pour out of the pipes if they are damaged. If you have a pool in your community, the pool contractor has been contacted and will be storing the pool furniture.

After the storm, your landscape company will begin clean-up as soon as it is safe to be on the roads. Initial clean up begins with clearing parking lots, walkways, and roadways of any hazards and for access. They will then consolidate piles and start removal of debris on the grounds.

Management will inspect the community once it is safe to do so. Please have your rental company inspect the inside your home. Notify your insurance agent of any damages.
