MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (September 10, 2017) - The Town of Mount Pleasant has made all operational preparations in anticipation of effects from Hurricane Irma and is prepared to mitigate the impacts of the storm. We are expecting tropical storm conditions beginning this evening, September 10, to include flooding and high winds. We anticipate power outages, property damage, and downed trees. High tide will occur just after noon tomorrow, September 11, and is expected to be well above normal. This, in addition to anticipated storm surge, will likely result in some impassable roadways and property flooding. In preparation for this, we have prepositioned equipment throughout the Town and our Police, Fire, and Public Services Departments are operating with increased staff.
The Town’s Municipal Emergency Operations Center will be operational throughout the storm event. All other Town offices will be closed during this time and all meetings and events for Monday and Tuesday have been cancelled. Town Hall offices will reopen at 11:00 AM on Tuesday, September 12 to provide necessary services to our citizens post storm.
Updates will be provided regarding trash collection schedule, court dates, and rescheduled meetings through the Town website and other media outlets.
