Consider This: Know Your Zone

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) This weather has been fantastic, almost summer like. But as the weather begins to warm that also means hurricane season is not far away and this year there are changes coming that could affect you.

Consider This: Over the coming months you'll hear about new evacuation guidelines. Some areas that were not part of the evacuation area in the past might have to evacuate under the new recommendations. You'll also hear this phrase … Know Your Zone and you need to pay attention. The new guidelines break down Horry and Georgetown Counties into zones so it is easier to understand when you will need to evacuate.

As always, we hope for a calm, uneventful hurricane season. But you must be prepared. Stay tuned to WMBF News for the latest information on these new guidelines and how they will affect you and your family.
