PINE RIDGE, SC
S.C. Gov. Henry McMaster announced a mandatory evacuation of the South Carolina coast on Monday.

Eight counties along the coast would begin evacuating as of noon on Tuesday, McMaster said at a press briefing on Monday.

McMaster said he would reverse lanes on four main roads to facilitate the evacuation. As many as a million people could leave the coast because of the order, the governor said.

“We know the evacuation order I’m issuing will be inconvenient,” McMaster said. “But we’re not going to gamble with the lives of the people of South Carolina.”

Dare County, the easternmost county in North Carolina, issued a state of emergency Monday morning and says all visitors and residents of Hatteras Island are under mandatory evacuations starting at noon. This includes the villages of Rodanthe, Waves, Salvo, Avon, Buxton, Frisco, and Hatteras Village.

The rest of Dare County will be under evacuation orders starting at 7:00 a.m. Tuesday.

The state of emergency also restricts swimming in the ocean as county officials say dangerous surf conditions make the ocean unsafe for even the most experienced swimmers.

To the southwest, the University of North Carolina Wilmington issued a voluntary evacuation for students starting Monday at noon, canceling classes from that point until further notice.

We highly recommend evacuees use Highway 64/264 and head to 1-95 to move North/South - Highway 158 will be very congested and 64/264 has less stoplights allowing for constant speed.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: September 10, 2018
Contact: Julie Buchanan, Senior P.R. & Marketing Specialist, (804) 786-2292, julie.buchanan@dcr.virginia.gov
Russ Baxter, Deputy Director for Soil and Water Conservation, Dam Safety and Floodplain Management, (804) 786-2291, russ.baxter@dcr.virginia.gov

Advisory to Virginia Dam Owners ahead of Hurricane Florence

RICHMOND, Va. — As of Monday Sept. 10, the National Weather Service has forecasted the potential for a major hurricane-level storm event in Virginia within the next week. Rainfall projections are currently forecasted to be from approximately 10 to 20 inches in some areas of the state if the storm were to slow down or “stall.”

In preparation for this potential storm event, the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation Dam Safety Program is offering the following information to dam owners.

1. Reach out to your professional engineer and discuss the specifics of your dam and what to do during an emergency situation.

2. Locate and review your dam's emergency action plan if one is in place. Ensure that all contacts and contact information are up-to-date. Provide any updates to the local emergency services contact and DCR Dam Safety.

3. If your dam has a working low-flow valve, you as the dam owner should consider consulting with your professional engineer about possibly lowering your lake level by up to 6 inches per day (24-hour period). By lowering the normal water level in your lake, you provide extra storage for when rainfall begins. Note that lowering lake levels by more than 6 inches per day is not allowed as rapid drawdown of a lake level could result in critical damage to your dam.

4. Visually inspect your dam and remove any debris from the primary and emergency spillways. Contact your professional engineer if any dam-related issues are found (seepage, slope failures, rodent holes, etc.)

For information about the Virginia Dam Safety Program, go to www.dcr.virginia.gov/dam-safety-and-floodplains/.
