CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Gas stations and grocery stores throughout the Lowcountry were packed Tuesday after Gov. Nikki Haley's announcement of a state of emergency and a call for coastal evacuations ahead of what could be a dangerous hurricane for South Carolina.

Viewers reported long lines at gas stations in North Charleston, Mount Pleasant, West Ashley and Summerville Tuesday afternoon and evening. 

By Tuesday night, residents were trying to locate a gas station that still had gas. 

A viewer who was looking for gas said there were long lines at the Pilot Truck Stop on North Rhett and Remount.

Drivers who waited in line at the Blue Water gas station in Mount Pleasant eventually gave up after learning there was no gas left. 

Many viewers also took pictures of empty water and bread shelves at local grocery stores. 

"No water at Target in Mount Pleasant and numerous gas stations out of gas," Live 5 Joey Sovine reported Tuesday evening."It's good to see that everyone seems to be taking this seriously."
