Impacts from Hurricane Michael have been minimal in the City of Darlington.

Darlington Fire Department, Darlington Street Department, and Duke Energy crews have cleared several trees from the roadways.

While more than 12 streets were under water at different times during the day, by the end of today many have gone down. We continue to monitor the situation and clear storm drains.

In areas where power was lost during the storm, all generators for the water and sewer system worked well. The outages also caused a few traffic lights to go out. Traffic lights were reported out at the intersections of  Pearl and Dargan Streets, East Hampton and South Main Streets, and West Broad and South Main Streets. Please approach these intersections with caution if the traffic devices are not functioning.

Darlington Police Department checked on the elderly and shut-ins throughout the day.

Mosquito spraying will continue Friday and Saturday night, weather permitting, from 8 p.m. to midnight citywide.

Williamson Park Drive and Williamson Park are closed until further notice for safety.

Darlington County and City offices will be open Friday for regular business hours.

Household garbage pickup and yard debris collection will be collected on FRIDAY for Thursday's regular route and Friday’s regular route. There will be no recycling collection this week. Recycling will resume Tuesday, Oct. 16, as scheduled.

Debris collection will be prioritized to clear roads and bridges before returning to regular routes based on damage assessments following the storm.

The S.C. Sweet Potato Festival will go ahead on schedule from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday downtown.
