Shortly after the conference, Georgetown County officials posted Facebook messages and a video clarifying that the risk of flooding was mainly for the Dunbar and Oatland communities, where evacuations are recommended, and areas around the Black River, Pee Dee River, and Mingo Creek.

There have been no recommended evacuations for the City of Georgetown, Andrews, or Pawleys Island.
