WILLIAMSBURG COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Williamsburg County Government Officials announced Sunday the curfew that was implemented earlier in the week has been lifted.

The county's Emergency Management Division has moved to OPCON level 3. 

Public Safety officials urge residents to be patient with road closings and remind them not to maneuver around remaining SCDOT barricades. Officials say law enforcement continues to respond to calls involving motorists driving into water on flooded roadways.

All Williamsburg County Government Offices will be operating on regular schedule starting Monday at 8:30 am.

Williamsburg County Schools will be closed Monday and Tuesday. However, the School District Office will be operating on an inclement weather schedule.
