Hurricane Central

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD) – Millions of people are packing up and hitting the road as Hurricane Florence approaches, which is leaving many gas stations with no gas. 

According to Triple A, several gas stations throughout the Lowcountry are without gas. People say they have searched for hours to find a gas station that is open and still has gas. 

“I started off just right down the street at the shell and everything was out of services,” Mount Pleasant resident, Hallie Thompson, said. “I was like oh shoot, I have to see what’s open. ” 

Thompson wasn’t the only one. 

“It took like 30 minutes to find some gas, this is the first place I found,” Mount Pleasant resident, Max Chatelain said.
