“According to the National Hurricane Center, Florence will approach the coast of North Carolina or South Carolina in the hurricane watch area Thursday and Friday,” said Mayor Haynie. “We are not simply focusing on the forecast track of this very dangerous category 4 hurricane but looking at the cone of uncertainty. We know that the impacts will extend across our state and the most important thing our residents should do during a major hurricane is to heed the governor’s words and evacuate.”
“I am keenly aware of today’s date, September 11, and of the cost that many public servants make on behalf of our communities daily,” added Mayor Haynie. “Thank you to all of our public servants for keeping Mount Pleasant ready and protected during this hurricane event.”
