2018 SC Hurricane Preparedness Guide

The S.C. Emergency Management Division (SCEMD) has released the official 2018 South Carolina Hurricane Guide. SCEMD and partner agencies have updated the Guide for the 2018 hurricane season. It details useful information on what residents should do before, during and after the landfall of a major hurricane.

Sections of the guide include new storm surge watch and warning information, tips on preparing for an evacuation, ways to stay connected during an emergency and steps to keep in mind when returning home after a major storm.

The Daniel Island POA has ordered paper copies of the new 2018 Hurricane Guide and will announce when they are available for residents to pick up. The POA office still has copies of the 2017 paper guide which are available for residents to pick up at any time. The online edition of the Hurricane Guide isĀ available for download HERE.

SCEMD, county emergency managers and the National Weather Service urge citizens to take time now to prepare for major emergency like hurricanes by reviewing their family emergency plans, developing a disaster supplies kit and talking with family members about what could happen during a crisis.
