Colleton County officials urging evacuation


Colleton County officials are "highly recommending" that citizens in Zone A of the county evacuate. 

"Due to the approaching conditions, emergency services may not be able to reach you in the event of an emergency," Colleton County emergency officials said." We have already experienced storm-related flooding which made roads impassable in Zone A."

According to officials, Zone A consists of anyone living south of the CSX railroad tracks in the southern portion of Colleton County and includes the communities of Edisto Beach/Island, Jacksonboro, Green Pond, Bennetts Point, Wiggins, White Hall areas (between the CSX railroad and Ace Basin Parkway / U.S. Highway 17) the Bonnie Doone and Maybank/Prices Bridge communities.

Authorities say Fire-Rescue personnel and the sheriff’s office will be going door-to-door on Thursday in Zone A urging citizens to evacuate.
