SCEMD: Helpful information about county and state closings

COLUMBIA, SC (WMBF) – State government and county administration offices are beginning to close as severe winter weather begins to effect the state.

Decisions about closings of state government offices are made by the county based on the same schedule as government offices.The SCETV network is broadcasting updated closing information about state offices via radio and TV. When closings are reported to the South Carolina Emergency Management Division, they are also posted on their website, scemd.org

Motorists are advised to remain off the road and to monitor local weather forecasts for updated conditions. The National Weather Service predicts conditions to worsen as the day progresses, therefore creating hazardous conditions with snow and ice accumulating rapidly throughout the Carolinas.

Residents are also encouraged to check on at-risk neighbors, the elderly, and relatives due to the increased potential for cold temperatures and power outages. Also make sure they have a warm and safe place to stay while conditions remain cold and hazardous.

SCEMD also recommends preparing a place indoors for pets and farm animals with extra water and food.
