SC emergency management preps for impacts from Hurricane Michael

South Carolina News

COLUMBIA, SC (WSPA) – South Carolina Emergency Management Division is preparing for any possible impacts from Hurricane Michael.

They say South Carolina could see heavy rain, gusty winds, tornadoes, and storm surge due to the hurricane.

SCEMD is at OPCON 4, the second lowest response level above normal, day-to-day activities.

“The exact location and the severity of what Hurricane Michael does to our state will depend on its intensity,” SCEMD Director Kim Stenson said, “Given the uncertainty of the storm’s strength and path as it approaches South Carolina, residents need to have their personal emergency plans ready to go just in case we need to take safety precautions later in the week.”
