Governor McMaster lifts all evacuation orders for SC coastal counties beginning 9 a.m. Sunday
COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - After lifting the evacuation orders for some of the coastal counties Saturday afternoon, Governor Henry McMaster has now lifted the evacuation orders for Horry and Georgetown counties.
As of noon on Saturday, evacuation orders were lifted for all residents in Charleston, Dorchester, and Berkeley counties along with Edisto Beach in Colleton County. The evacuation orders for Horry and Georgetown counties will be lifted at 9 a.m.
Residents traveling back are asked to have patience. Lengthy travel times, downed power lines, and standing water in and around roadways can be expected.
The governor says that while Tropical Storm Florence no longer presents a threat to the areas where the orders have been lifted, hazardous conditions still exist in many parts of coastal and inland counties.
