CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Once Hermine passed the Lowcountry late Friday night, some businesses opened back up and people came out.
"Just another day in paradise," Joseph Monahan said.
However, Friday morning and afternoon weren't paradise.
As Tropical Storm Hermine made its way to the Lowcountry it brought along with it heavy rainfall and strong winds.
"The winds were pretty windy, it would blow you back and you could lean forward and it would push you back," Jonah Hinson said.
Friday evening brought clearer skies however for parts of Charleston County.
In Shem Creek, some restaurants opened back up and the people came.
"Definetly the locals are out enjoying it because it's a beautiful night," Suzanne Cochran said.
Cochran also said she didn't see any damage to the boats docked on Shem Creek.
"All the boats look great," Cochran said.
