South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster said time was running out for coastal residents to evacuate from Hurricane Dorian. Water levels in parts of South Carolina are rising gradually, he said, but Tuesday's levels were below the peak measured by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the U.S. Geological Survey.
The storm brought very heavy rains, including 6.86 in Savannah, a storm surge of 20 feet and wind speeds of nearly 90 miles per hour. The storm nearly made it to the U.S. Virgin Islands, where the LEFT office is based, but the islands received 11 inches of rain. It produced wind gusts of up to 100 miles per hour and gusty winds of 120 miles per hour, producing a very high tide and very strong winds in the 10 to 15 mile per hour range.
Floods were reported from South Carolina, Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia, as well as the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
This is a photo taken Saturday, October 8, 2016, as then-Category 1 storm Matthew devastated the town of Hilton Head, South Carolina, in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The National Weather Service did not report the hurricane until it swept through the state on October 9, 2017 with a Category 4 storm surge.
While the most severe wind damage occurred near and south of Charleston, South Carolina, significant storm surge flooding occurred in Hilton Head, South Carolina. Damage was significant, especially in the north and Charleston, and residents had to dig about 37 miles of drainage shafts to remove salt water to plant food crops.
The restoration includes repairs to damaged furnishings, roofing systems, sanitary, electrical and sanitary systems. Most of the damage to homes and businesses in Hilton Head, South Carolina, can be repaired for about $100 to $300.

There is a special coating that can be applied to the most vulnerable parts of your air conditioning system to protect them from damage. If you live in the coastal areas of Hilton Head or Bluffton, you have the option of quickly connecting all the new devices you have. Once your inspector has determined that mold at your South Carolina Hilton home has reached a sufficiently high level, you will want to initiate a process known as mold remediation. This means that if you see stains forming or smell something musty, you should call us, such as the rapid removal of mould.
We understand that some cases can be rejected because these events occur slowly over time, but as water damage progresses, you may want to start removing valuable items that may be accessible with water. Such damages are covered by the water damage insurance provided by our plan.
Make sure to add flood insurance to your Hilton Head home contents cover to ensure you are fully protected during a storm. Wind and hail damage is covered by a separate state-backed policy issued by the South Carolina Wind Hail Association. Our basic homeowner insurance policies cover property damage in the form of wind, hail, fire and flood damage. Please continue to inform yourself about current information on the insurance of your property.
To prepare for Hurricane Dorian and this storm, MUSC Health is offering virtual care and online visits to South Carolina residents. For families evacuating the coastal region, the South Carolina State Museum will offer free general admission for the first time on Tuesday, September 12, 2017, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The costly aftermath of a hurricane can be devastating, with homeowners on Hilton Head Island paying about $215 a month on average. Hilton Head Island has announced it will provide $1 million in disaster relief to its residents by midnight on November 18, 2017.
When we talk about water damage, it means damage to property, whether small or large. Most people don't think about how saltwater affects a property on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina's largest island. A defective water channel or leaky appliance caused by a storm surge, flood, or other natural disasters, such as a hurricane, can cost only a few hundred dollars.
As you can see, it can take a lot to defuse this in your home, the best method being to keep high concentrations away from the house. In addition, there are certain parts, such as air conditioners, that are more susceptible to mould than other parts of the house, such as plumbing. You can find mould in the air conditioning or in other areas of your house. Everywhere on Hilton Head, where there is low ventilation and high humidity (as in the 29926 area), mold is vulnerable, whether in a particular part of an air conditioner or not.
