Dorchester County encourages residents who live in a low-lying or flood-prone area to please consider evacuating or relocating with family or friends or to the pet-friendly shelter at Dubose Middle School.
Once Dorchester County begins to experience sustained tropical-storm-force winds (39 mph) all public safety crews will be pulled off the roads. If residents choose to travel during this time, it will be at their own risk as crews will be unable to respond until the sustained winds subside. Dorchester County asks residents to remain off the roads until the storm has passed and the roadways have been deemed safe. Driving during the storm or before the all clear is given puts their lives and the lives of our first responders at risk.
