COLUMBIA, SC — Governor Nikki Haley held a news conference Wednesday evening to give an update to residents on Hurricane Matthew and what the state is continuing to do in preparation.

The Governor commended residents for participating in the evacuation process. Officials said the evacuation have been a success so far with more than 250,000 people evacuated and another 200,000 expected.

The lane reversals are planned to stay in place until Friday when officials will reevaluate conditions and needs.

Governor Haley says fuel supplies throughout the state are good, but hotels are filling up. Officials are monitoring for cases of price gouging but say so far no reports have been filed.

Residents are encouraged to visit www.scemd.org for information on shelters throughout the state as well as other Matthew related notifications, and www.scdot.org to view current traffic conditions and to plan their routes.
