Hurricane Dorian

Hurricane Dorian was a force to be reckoned with. She made her way thru the Lowcountry and brought with her: heavy wind, torrential downpours, power outages, as well as downed trees.

However, we are very grateful that damages were minimal. Many thanks to all the local agencies who assisted the public in getting things back to normal.

Hopefully, everyone remained safe and calm throughout the storm. We send our thoughts and prayers to residents of the Bahamas for their loss and damages sustained by the hurricane.
