#2 Hurricane Hint: Purchase Supplies

There are several things you should purchase to help you be prepared for a disaster, such as flashlights and batteries, bottled water, and food that doesn’t need to be cooked. You might want tarps to cover damaged sections of your home, if necessary. Consider purchasing a portable external battery for your cell phone.

The recommendation is that you have a minimum of three days of food and water for you, your family members and your pets. Most websites recommend a gallon of water per day per person or pet.

Click here for a link to a more comprehensive list of supplies prepared by Charleston County. Many of the big box stores have emergency supplies on sale starting in June.

Remember, be prepared; stay safe.

The new Grief Support Group will hold its monthly meetings on the third Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm in the Eagle’s Nest room at the Lake House. The next three meetings will be on June 20, July 18, and August 15.

Wildlife Sighting Form

As SIPOA changes the web management interface from AssociationVoice to GateAcess, the steps to access the Wildlife Sighting form have changed slightly. The process is easy and the Environmental Committee hopes to gather more data on the island’s wildlife. Once data is collected, the EC will have access to software that can track animals’ movements.  It should be informative to see exactly where animals such as piebald deer, bobcats, and coyotes tend to spend their time. Seabrook Island is also fortunate to host interesting birds such as the roseate spoonbill, bald eagles, wood storks and even pesky wild turkeys. Follow these steps to report an interesting sighting and soon we may be able to discover a little more about the animal life on Seabrook Island.

Go to in your browser.

At the top of the page, highlight SIPOA, and  a drop-down menu appears.

Click on Wildlife Sighting.

This page will appear:






You are encouraged to use the form.

South Carolina is home to 6 species of venomous snakes. They are active at this time of year and rather than identifying them, it is best to give them a wide berth. If you are interested in knowing more about them, see this article from The Post and Courier, Sunday, June 10, 2018, by clicking on this link or get the PDF here.
