S.C. Gov. calls for evacuation of coastal counties

COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley is calling for an evacuation of the coastal region of South Carolina and is closing schools and Government buildings in all three of our coastal counties: Jasper, Hampton, and Beaufort.

Haley asks that residents of these areas get at least 100 miles away.

Interstate 26, Highway 21 and highway 278 will have lane reversals starting at 3pm Wednesday.

“We do not do ‘voluntary’ or ‘mandatory’ evacuations any more,” says Haley.
