COLUMBIA, SC (WMBF) - Gov. Nikki Haley pleaded with South Carolina residents to stay indoors Saturday night as Hurricane Matthew continues to make its presence known.

Haley gave her latest update Saturday evening as Matthew continued to bring strong wind gusts along the Grand Strand. 

"Please stay home tonight," she said.

Across the state, Matthew has left over 833,000 customers without power, according to Haley.

She added the storm has led to three dam breaches, including two in Dillon County.

During the press conference, officials said 10 to 15 inches of rain have been seen across the Lowcountry, the Pee Dee and the Grand Strand.

Haley said hopes are to begin rescinding portions of the evacuation order starting Sunday and allow some residents to return home.

She added rivers are going to be an issue, and some that are being looked at are the Waccamaw, Black and Pee Dee rivers.

Another update is scheduled for Sunday morning.
