Evacuation? Plan ahead with Know Your Zone meeting

CONWAY, SC (WMBF) After numerous changes were made to the hurricane evacuation plan, Horry County Emergency Management will host several town hall meetings to discuss the new information and allow residents to ask questions.

Officials will speak with the Grand Strand communities regarding the Know Your Zone hurricane campaign, and educate attendees on the new changes and what to expect if an evacuation is ordered.

Meetings will be offered at different locations at the times and dates listed below:

June 20 at 6:00 p.m.

  • Carolina Forest Community Center (co-hosted by the Carolina Forest Civic Association), 2254 Carolina Forest Boulevard

June 21 at 6:00 p.m.

  • North Strand Community Center, 120 Highway 57 South

June 26 at 6:00 p.m.

  • South Strand Community Center, 9650 Scipio Lane

July 5 at 6:00 p.m.

  • James R. Frazier Community Center, 1370 Bucksport Road

July 12 at 7:00 p.m.

  • South Strand Community Center (co-hosted by the Greater Burgess Association), 9650 Scipio Lane

One of the most vital changes includes three new hurricane evacuation zones, which will incorporate more neighborhoods throughout the Grand Strand and will require additional people living in those areas to leave during certain hurricanes based on surge inundation instead of category of storm. 

It will be important for every resident to know if they live in a new hurricane evacuation zone and what to do when asked to leave. Residents can visit the Horry County Emergency Management's website to view the new hurricane evacuation zone maps.

The WMBF Hurricane Tracker also offers advice on how to evacuate with your pets, how to protect your home, and what routes to take during an evacuation.
