Hurricane Elsa

SCEMD is the lead state coordinating agency during natural disasters and is monitoring Hurricane Elsa, which forecasters say could affect South Carolina next week.  As a result of the storm’s projected movement toward the southeast United States, key local and state agencies have been notified to be ready to respond if the need arises.

South Carolina residents and visitors in potentially vulnerable areas should review their plans and consider actions they would need to take if the storm threatens the state. Everyone should monitor the storm via local news media and follow updates from the National Hurricane Center, especially people in low-lying areas along the South Carolina coast.
