CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) – Gov. Nikki Haley says the National Guard is already mobilized in South Carolina as Hurricane Matthew approaches the state.
She said Wednesday that the storm is slowing and that it will not be necessary to evacuate some 1 million people on Wednesday as she had considered on Tuesday. Instead, residents in Charleston and Beaufort are being ordered to leave Wednesday.
She said 315 buses from Greenville will be in North Charleston at noon to take people to other areas.
Lane reversals on the road leading out of Charleston will begin at 3 p.m.
