FOLLY BEACH, S.C. (AP) – Governor Haley gave an update at 9:30AM at the South Carolina Emergency Operations center in West Columbia.
Haley says 175,000 people have evacuated, Haley says. All hotels across state are “pretty much full.”
Horry and Georgetown counties will be evacuated Thursday at noon.
Officials are suggesting that other evacuees to look for hotels in Charlotte.
During Haley’s news conference, she will update everyone on the storm’s potential impact and evacuations for the state.
Gov. Haley says she is evaluating the forecast for Hurricane Matthew day-by-day and can change her mind about closing schools, lane reversals or other decisions.
Haley said she will keep acting with utmost caution as long as South Carolina remains in the National Hurricane Center’s forecast cone for Matthew.
The governor said her team watched Wednesday as the forecast for the hurricane had the storm pulling away from the coast, and then later shifted it to hugging the South Carolina shoreline.
