Santee Cooper preparing for Isaias

MONCKS CORNER, S.C. – Santee Cooper is preparing for a potential landfall tonight of what would be Hurricane Isaias along the coast of Horry County, with crews staged and on standby to begin restoring any power outages as soon as it is safe to do so. 

In addition to its own crews, Santee Cooper has contract tree, line and helicopter crews ready to assist with restoration as needed to our transmission and distribution systems, and our storm centers and Call Center are fully staffed. Personnel are tracking the storm as it approaches the coast and will adjust crews based on its ultimate track. 

Santee Cooper’s retail offices in Moncks Corner and Myrtle Beach are open for normal business hours today and tomorrow, although that could change depending on the storm’s path and damage. The Call Center is staffed for 24-hour service through Wednesday morning, and that may be adjusted as needed. 

“Santee Cooper teams have been planning for the storm’s arrival since late last week, we are ready and we have crews scheduled around the clock to return our system to normal,” said Mike Poston, Chief Customer Officer. “We remind customers they can report and track outages online, urge them to stay safe, and ask that they stay away from any downed power lines.” 

Customers can report outages at or by calling 1-888-769-7688. For additional information on keeping yourself and your family safe during a hurricane, visit the Santee Cooper website at
