Electric cooperatives in South Carolina prepared for restoration work Friday as Hurricane Ian pushed toward another landfall, threatening damage to coastal and lowland areas. The storm, which hit Florida’s Gulf Coast on Wednesday as a Category 4 hurricane, is expected to cross the South Carolina coast at Category 1 strength with highest sustained winds of about 80 mph.
“We’re thankful Ian isn’t as strong of a storm as it was when it hit Florida, but we know it’s going to be a long day for our cooperatives, especially those along the coast,” said Van O’Cain, director of member and public relations for the Electric Cooperatives of South Carolina.
