Good afternoon Island residents,
As previously noted Charleston County activated its emergency debris removal contract last week. The general contractor for that work is Ash Britt and they will use several sub-contractors for collection and hauling. FEMA and Charleston County officials estimate that there is approximately 240,000 cubic yards of organic debris in the County for removal. As of today approximately 40 trucks are working throughout the County to remove the storm debris.
In terms of debris collection on Sullivan’s Island here are the details available as of today:
Now for the news from the tropics:
If you have been watching the local news or Weather Channel it should be no surprise that there is the potential for tropical cyclone development. Currently a system is located approximately 230 miles southeast of Great Abaco Island with a general northwest track. Early forecasts and models suggest tropical storm force winds and rain for Sullivan’s Island this weekend. BE SURE TO KEEP YOUR EYE ON THIS STORM.
And if that was not enough bad news, a second system that spun off of Africa earlier this week and currently located in the general area of 13N 32W is also tracking west. Sullivan’s Island is located at 32.763N 79.836W.
Stay tuned for more messages as needed.
