COLUMBIA, S.C. (WMBF) – The South Carolina Emergency Management Division has released its 2020 hurricane guide on the official start of hurricane season.

The season, which runs June 1 through Nov. 30, has an added hardship of coming in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to the SCEMD, “the imminent danger of a hurricane is a greater, immediate threat to your personal safety than COVID-19.”

“Your first priority should be to protect yourself from a potential hurricane if an evacuation is issued for your area,” the guide states.
