It will be the biggest weather threat since Homer Bryson, a former corrections commissioner, was tapped to lead the state's emergency management agency shortly after Hurricane Matthew battered Georgia in October.

Cooper said the emergency teams from North Carolina that went to Texas to assist after Hurricane Harvey have all returned home.

"Our emergency operations are now activated", said Cooper.

McMaster said he reviewed the 5 p.m. update to Hurricane Irma's forecast track before making that decision.

"If there's a freight train coming at you, then you get off the tracks", said Jason Buelterman, mayor of Tybee Island, a beach community of more than 3,000 residents east of Savannah. "We're going to have a hurricane party". "If it comes, it's going to be here, but we can be ready for it".

Charleston city leaders, department heads and emergency officials are meeting daily to prepare for Hurricane Irma's potential landfall.

Jones spoke about an hour after the first group of buses evacuated about 240 residents without transportation to Augusta following the start of the mandatory evacuation at 8 a.m. Contraflow has been implemented and all eastbound lands on Interstate 16 are now blocked from Dublin to Savannah. They would then post their listings as available for no charge to evacuees and relief workers for the next three weeks, until September 28. "If you have outdoor furniture that's loose and fly around tie it up put it inside", he said. "If you don't have gas in your vehicle better get some". "It may or may not be an adequate reflection of current forecast uncertainty". Officials expect to know if the Carolinas are in the storm's path within the next two days.

Airbnb has also contacted all Airbnb users within the evacuating territories to make them aware of this tool if they are in need of shelter.

As of the 11 a.m., advisory, Irma was still an "extremely dangerous" Category 4 storm with maximum sustained winds of 150 miles per hour. So was a portion of coastal SC from the Georgia line to Edisto Beach, about 40 miles (65 kilometers) southwest of Charleston. They are advising everyone to have emergency plans and supplies ready no matter the situation.

Sheltering and state park information are available on the GEMA/HS website or by calling 1-800-TRY-GEMA.

Along South Carolina's coast and inland in locations such as Orangeburg, it appears memories of Matthew have many people preparing already. "Where do we have to go except the bathroom and the back bedroom?" "We do have others inbound from other states".

Under the act, FEMA's director is required "to ensure that state and local emergency preparedness operational plans address the needs of individuals with household pets and service animals prior to, during, and following a major disaster or emergency".
