SATURDAY UPDATE: Important News from John's Island Club -The Beach Club & Golf Club have regained power this afternoon. Lunch and Dinner Service at the Beach Club is back to normal operations. The pool is clean and beach has full access. Tomorrow Fitness will reopen and Golf & Tennis will announce their reopening schedules.
FRIDAY UPDATE: We are all grateful and fortunate that the storm took a turn to the north and stayed offshore. It was very loud & windy however the results couldn't have been better. Despite the horrendous amount of debris that fell, mostly from the live oaks, a quick assessment of JI reveals that we are looking good. Numerous large trees came down blocking roads but are being attended to. Power is still out but bridges are open and owners are returning to JI as of 2:00 pm today. Our beach is in amazingly good condition as are the Clubs. We were truly lucky we didn't get a direct hit.
Five of our Agents, including Bob Gibb, stayed on JI to ride out the storm. By 7:30 am they were out checking up on all of our client's properties. Many homes on the water have lost their docks or have suffered damage. Condos and cottages all look good. Courtyard homes seem good except for major debris covering the streets.
As the on-site real estate company in JI, we will be open tomorrow regardless of the power situation so we may continue serving our clients. Thank you to everyone who kept us in your thoughts. We will be hoping for the best to those ahead of the storm.
