Posted by Century 21 Thomas Blogger | Wednesday, October 5, 2016

Governor Nikki Haley has made a change to coastal evacuations ahead of the potential landfall of Hurricane Matthew this morning.

Instead of a blanket mandatory evacuation for the entire South Carolina coast beginning at 3 p.m. Wednesday, Governor Haley says Charleston and Beaufort counties are only under that evacuation order.
Residents in Georgetown and Horry counties are now being asked to evacuate Thursday morning.

Governor Haley said the state National Guard has already been activated to help residents evacuate along the coast. Over 300 buses are also on the way to the coast to take Lowcountry residents to Greenville.
