CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – Units from the U.S. National Guard are at Conway Highway School Thursday morning, ready to deploy at stops along evacuation routes, if an evacuation for Horry and Georgetown counties is ordered Thursday.

WMBF News Reporter Meredith Helline witnessed the National Guard at the high school Thursday morning, getting ready to man points on Horry County evacuation routes. She said they had lots of equipment, with most carrying traffic vests.

Units from the State Law Enforcement Division, Highway Patrol, and local police were also at the high school, and left at about 8:30 a.m. National Guard units stayed behind, Helline said.

Gov. Haley announced Wednesday evening that evacuations for Horry and Georgetown counties could potentially begin at noon Thursday. She is scheduled to speak again at 9:30 a.m. Thursday about the potential evacuations.
