COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – The Latest on Hurricane Matthew’s impact on South Carolina (all times local):
Heavy rains and winds from Hurricane Matthew have caused crews to close a section of Interstate 95 in southern South Carolina as winds gusted over 60 mph in Beaufort County.
The state Department of Transportation said on Twitter that the highway was closed in Jasper County between Ridgeland and Hardeeville.
Authorities did not know when the highway would be reopened. I-95 is the main route connecting Florida and the Southeast with the Northeast. Low-lying sections of the highway have flooded at least three times in the past year, forcing the interstate to close.
The National Weather Service says a 64 mph wind gust was reported in Beaufort at 10:15 p.m. Friday, while a 56 mph gust was reported on Sullivans Island at about the same time.
