A lot of readers have been asking us for updates on Palmetto Dunes.
This kind reader, Kip Putnam, sent in the following:
“My parents stayed on Long Boat in Palmetto Dunes and that area looks pretty good compared to the rest of Hilton Head. There are downed trees everywhere so they can’t drive anywhere to explore but they’ve done a little exploring on foot, but apparently it’s quite an obstacle course. Trees on the ground and swampy ground everywhere.
“Long Boat had a few inches of standing water but the houses didn’t seem to have any water up against them by the time the sun rose on Saturday morning. They still don’t have power in that area but the water service was restored midday yesterday, which I thought was totally remarkable (hats off to all the guys working so hard to restore the town back to normal ... my parents said they’ve been amazing!).
“The far end of Mooring Buoy has the worst flooding they’ve seen in PD so far (where the road bends near Night Heron).
“They walked about halfway up Port Tack. It's very swampy, with a lot of downed trees. Some of the trees have fallen onto roofs but they didn't see any alarming damage.
“They are biking to South Beach right now. I will send another email with an update on that area as soon as I hear anything.”
