Graham on Coastal Evacuation, Lane Reversal

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on the approach of Hurricane Florence and efforts being undertaken in South Carolina to prepare for landfall.

“I support Governor McMaster’s decision to order a coastal evacuation and the reversal of lanes beginning Tuesday morning. 

“At this time, it’s not whether Hurricane Florence is going to do damage to South Carolina – but where and how much?

“I think it is much better to be prudent and cautious than to risk the lives and well-being of both our citizens and first responders. 

“I stand ready to help Governor McMaster and officials across South Carolina in any way possible as we prepare for this very powerful storm.”
