MONCKS CORNER, S.C. – (Thursday, June 13, 2024) – Clean-up efforts and debris removal remain underway across Berkeley County, in areas impacted by a severe storm Monday evening, June 10, 2024. As of Tuesday morning, crews with Berkeley County Roads and Bridges had reopened all roadways and made them passable.

County crews continue to concentrate on debris removal in impacted neighborhoods and are also assisting the state and local municipalities as needed within their respective jurisdictions. Trash companies will continue to pick up normal debris piles. Berkeley County residents may also use the landfill and/or county convenience centers to dispose of their debris. Facility hours and locations can be found HERE.

Residents in need of storm cleanup assistance can also contact Crisis Cleanup on its public hotline at 843-212-0552 now through June 28. This organization connects individuals in need with volunteers from local relief organizations, community groups, and faith communities who may be able to assist with cutting fallen trees, tarping roofs, and more. Learn more at www.crisiscleanup.org.

Residents and businesses that sustained storm damage are urged to report damage HERE. Reporting storm damage will help Berkeley County staff gauge the extent of damage and report the findings to state and federal officials. These reports will determine appropriate federal and state funding for damage caused by the storm.

A Citizen Call Line remains open at 843-719-4800. Callers will hear an automated message with storm-related information. Please still call 911 for all emergencies.

The County’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is currently operating at OPCON 2, which means the EOC has limited activation with the Emergency Operations Plan still in effect. The County transitioned from OPCON Level 1 to OPCON Level 2 at 8 a.m. on Tuesday and plans to soon return to OPCON 3, normal operating conditions.
