Hurricane: Emergency Shelters

Because of upgrades in storm surge technology and other factors, Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester counties no longer list potential hurricane shelters. Individual storms will dictate whether and which shelters open. The information will be published on the counties' websites: berkeleycountysc.gov, charlestoncounty.org and dorchestercounty.net. If you relocate to a shelter, make sure to bring blankets and pillows, some food for the first day, and any necessary medications and sanitary supplies. It is highly recommended that you bring your Emergency Supplies Kit.
