What to do if there's a Charleston County evacuation, but you don't have a ride

Hurricane Evacuation plan if you don't have a ride (NOAA/Charleston County)

S.C. Governor Henry McMaster said Thursday he would likely order an evacuation for Charleston and other coastal counties on Saturday if Hurricane Irma continues its forecast track toward South Carolina.

If an evacuation is ordered for Charleston County, but you do not have transportation, buses will be provided to take you to the nearest available shelter. You can catch the buses at the pick-up locations listed below.

If you have an animal to evacuate with you and you do not have transportation, or if you are disabled and cannot get to the nearest evacuation pick-up point contact the Charleston County Emergency Public Information Line at (843) 746-3900 for assistance.
