Update - Potential Evacuation of Zone "A" in Horry County
Posted by Century 21 Thomas Blogger | Wednesday, October 5, 2016

During a Wednesday, October 5, 6:00 p.m. press conference, Governor Nikki Haley said that a POTENTIAL evacuation of Zone "A" in Horry County might occur at "noon tomorrow" (October 6). She said that she would again address the potential for an evacuation at a morning press conference on October 6.

At this time, no evacuation is in effect for Horry County. However, the Governor did note that, although some forecasters identify Hurricane Matthew as tracking a bit more to the east, it is still a large, powerful storm and, if it adheres to today's forecaster tracks, could bring 5-10 inches of rain to our coast, high winds and, depending on when it interacts with our coast, potential high storm surge.

At its current pace, the storm is forecast to interact with our coast by degrees later on Friday through Sunday.
