MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Georgetown County’s Emergency Operations Center will no longer be working around the clock as rivers around the Grand Strand begin to recede in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence.

In a series of tweets issued Saturday the EOC explains the threat of river flooding no longer requires all staff to be present 24-hours a day.

“We don’t anticipate worsening conditions,” officials said in part.

The remaining two shelters at Waccamaw Middle School and Georgetown High School are expected to close at noon on Saturday.
