Projected wind gusts will be the problem, especially in the mountains where there will be a lot of power outages:

The winds combined with several inches of rain has the potential to bring down a lot of trees, which could cause a lot of power outages. The middle of the current forecast track puts us on the East side of the storm which typically sees the most rainfall.

If the storm stays on its current track, it could potentially affect Greenville more than Charleston and Columbia. I don't think I've ever seen a hurricane do that.

Every time I see a new track it's a little further west with the latest one going through GA and up through middle Tenn.

South Carolina emergency officials have opened a toll-free phone hotline to answer any questions residents have about Hurricane Irma.

The hotline's number is 1-866-246-0133, and the state Emergency Management Division says it will be staffed 24 hours a day as long as it is needed.

Division spokesman Derrec Becker says operators can answer questions such as the best way for people to secure their homes before they head inland or get information about potential evacuation orders.

They're really starting to dial things back now.. Latest I'm seeing is 3-5 of rain and 20-30mph winds.

I noticed tonight around 6:30 or so, 26NB was backed up in the Clinton area. Noticed a lot of cars coming into Clinton via 56 as well. I didn't think to look at the tags on the cars on 26, but most of the ones we saw in Clinton were Florida tags, a couple of Georgia tags as well.
