13 Undeniable Thoughts Every South Carolinian Has When A Hurricane Approaches

As Hurricane Matthew churns in the Atlantic, many South Carolinians are keeping a keen eye on local weather reports in efforts to understand just how they’ll be affected by the dangerous storm. With the governments of Florida, Georgia and South Carolina advising residents along their coasts to evacuate, it’s speculated that this will be the largest mass evacuation since Hurricane Floyd in 1999.
