CHARLESTON, S.C. – Hurricane Matthew is expected to have 100 mph winds when it brushes or hits South Carolina on Friday night.   South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley has declared a state of emergency on Tuesday and ordered an evacuation of more than a million people in coastal areas starting Wednesday afternoon in anticipation of  Matthew.

 

Highways will have all traffic lanes directed away from the coast for the evacuation, and the state will close schools and county government offices in 26 of the state’s 46 counties staring Wednesday.

Other state agencies prepared by ensuring fuel supplies in potential evacuation zones, readying shelters and highways to handle any evacuees, and taking inventory of emergency food supplies in state schools and warehouses.
