FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) – A state of emergency has been declared within the City of Florence and a 7 p.m. curfew is being enforced.

The following is a news release from Florence Mayor Stephen J. Wukela:

Florence Mayor Stephen J. Wukela declared a state of emergency within the City of Florence due to the threat to health and safety posed by continued rains and rising waters.  The Mayor's declaration echoed and reinforced the same made earlier in the day by Florence County.  By virtue of the Declaration, the City, like the County, established a mandatory curfew for city residents for non-emergency activities from 7:00 p.m. Sunday until sunrise.  Excempted from the City curfew are essential public safety/medical employees and essential industry staff.


Further, the City Manager directed that City of Florence Courts will be closed on Monday, and that except for public safety or emergency crews, all other city employees should report to work on a two-hour delay Monday.
