Authorities provided an update on the preparations in North Carolina as well, where officials are working with FEMA and preparing for possible evacuations.

Deal said Wednesday his emergency order ensures aid for communities along Georgia's 100-mile (160-kilometer) coastline, prohibits price gouging for fuel and other goods and services.

When faced with situations such as the impending hurricane expected to impact SC, we always want to exercise caution and use good judgement to ensure students' safety.

McMaster said "If we say go, that means it's time to go".

The state emergency declaration allows state officials to set up an operations center in West Columbia.

Adjutant General Robert Livingston says National Guardsmen have not yet been activated, but those helping with the recovery from Hurricane Harvey are heading back to SC.

The price gouging law is a general prohibition of unconscionable prices during times of disaster.

Wilson says some price increases can be expected, but price gouging is punishable by a $1,000 fine and 30 days in jail.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton told the media that his office had received reports of gas being sold for $10 a gallon, and a case of water going for $99. The campus will close on Thursday at 9 p.m.

Charleston Southern issued a mandatory evacuation for resident students by noon Friday.

Henry McMaster has declared a state of emergency ahead of Hurricane Irma's arrival. It also allows the National Guard to pre-position resources in anticipation of evacuation and recovery. At the time, maximum sustained wind speeds for the Category 5 hurricane were recorded at 185 miles per hour.
