As Hurricane Ian continues along its path toward South Carolina, the mayor of Charleston is urging government agencies and businesses in the city to shut down on Friday.
- Although Mayor John Tecklenburg says, “There will be water tomorrow in this city,” he stopped short of ordering any evacuations in Charleston, where experts expect several feet of ocean water to surge into coastal areas of the city. “Take this storm seriously,” Tecklenburg adds. “Tomorrow, stay home and stay out of harm’s way.”
- Forecasters say Ian will make landfall in South Carolina sometime on Friday as a “minimal hurricane.”
