SC Gov. says he needs more information to make decision on evacuation
Sep 10, 2017, 12:38
McMaster says State Agencies are asking everyone to be prepared for Hurricane Irma. Now, only the 27 facilities and three hospitals in Beaufort and Jasper counties are being required to evacuate, the governor said.
Limited Coastal evacuations are set to begin at 10am Saturday. He said fuel is continuing to be delivered to all branded gas stations such as Exxon and BP. Traffic on Interstate 95, which stretches up the East Coast from Florida, was up 40 percent on Wednesday, McMaster said.
Exactly where the storm will go will depend on how Irma moves through Florida.
Gov. Henry McMaster said Friday he plans to make a decision later today about whether to evacuate residents from the coast, after the track for Hurricane Irma shifted west and away from SC. Those evacuations could start Saturday morning and include some lane reversals on roads leading from the coast.
In its current track, the eye of Irma is set to make landfall over the southern portion of Florida on Sunday night and make its way north, nearing south Georgia by Monday. He also spoke on the progress of evacuation efforts in SC.
State forecasters remained uncertain of the storm's path and cautioned that SC residents should remain vigilant.
