South Carolina law enforcement officers and Army National Guard will be posted along these routes to assist you. Motorists who deviate from the primary evacuation routes may experience delays.

Do not forget to secure your property before you leave. Remember to take along important papers and medications. If you plan to stay in an American Red Cross shelter, remember that pets are not allowed. Now is the time to get ready.

If an evacuation order is issued and you are unsure as to what route to use, you may call the Public Information Phone System at 866- 246-0133. Volunteers are available 24 hours a day during emergency situations to provide evacuation and shelter information. For up-to-date traffic information during an evacuation, tune in to your local public radio station: WHMC, 90.1 FM.

Motorists should be on the lookout for electronic message boards along the evacuation routes and should follow any instructions displayed. These boards may direct motorists to tune in to a local AM radio station to hear route-specific traffic information and other special emergency-related messages.
