Southbound lanes of Ribaut Road in Port Royal were closed for about three hours Wednesday afternoon after power lines came down.
Lanes were closed near Pinckney Boulevard from about 2 p.m. until shortly before 5 p.m., according to Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office advisories.
The lines came down in front of the Naval Hospital Beaufort and Pinckney Boulevard, Port Royal Police Department Deputy Chief Maj. Ron Wekenmann said Wednesday afternoon. No injuries were reported.
The Naval Hospital only lost power briefly, and it did not disrupt operations there, a hospital representative said Wednesday afternoon.
SCE&G was not able to concretely determine what caused the lines to come down Wednesday afternoon, spokesman Eric Boomhower said. He said it was likely that a tree or branch caused the issue.
