Greetings Islanders,
 
It’s time to head back home. 
 
Effective immediately, the Governor has lifted the evacuation order for our community and I simultaneously granted re-entry to the Island. Please take care to travel safely and keep these things in mind:
 
*With the evacuation order lifted and the re-entry order established, you will be able to travel over the bridge and onto the Island.
*The Emergency Room operations at Hilton Head Hospital will be operational at 10:00 a.m. These are EMERGENCY ROOM OPERATIONS ONLY. Full normal operations are expected tomorrow morning.
*Power may not be available in a few spots. Palmetto Electric is diligently working to restore power to the approximately 1,500 customers currently without power on Hilton Head Island. For more details click here.
 
Thank you to everyone on the Town team, including the Emergency Operations Center and the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office, whose efforts were excellent.
 
Thank you all for your patience and understanding. We are most certainly an incredible community.
 
Sincerely,
 
Mayor David Bennett
