Harmony Senior Services Communities and Hurricane Michael
Harmony Senior Services is tracking Hurricane Michael and its current forecasted path will directly impact our communities in South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia. The extent of the impact is yet unknown, however, you can rest assured that we will respond to orders from state and local authorities and prepare to meet the needs of our residents and team members.
Townhall meetings will be held in all of our communities by Wednesday morning in an effort to inform our residents and staff members of our preparations for Hurricane Michael.
In an effort to keep our Harmony Senior Services Family informed about what is happening at our communities during Hurricane Michael, we’ve created a variety of options to help you access information including:

The latest update on Tropical Storm Michael is that it continues to travel very fast (21 mph) and remains a significant rain and wind event. Currently the storm is impacting Columbia and Charleston and Harmony is happy that there are no serious issues to report. However, we continue to remain vigilant and monitor conditions.
Harmony has not received any evacuation orders for any of our communities and it appears that we will remain to shelter in place at this time. The center of the storm is projected to move North East through North Carolina and into Virginia. The storm has shifted to the north slightly which will carry the center over several Harmony communities in the Tidewater Virginia area, increasing potential rain amounts there and in Richmond. Projected winds remain significant and will impact Virginia from Roanoke to the Coast. While rain fall amounts are forecasted to be significant with a potential for localize higher totals overnight, we encourage everyone in the Harmony family in these areas to monitor local weather conditions and forecasts.
Harmony will continue to monitor the storm, provide our family with updated weather forecasts and keep you informed in the event that our communities experience negative impacts.
