Gov. Henry McMaster announced on Sept. 1 a mandatory evacuation that included eight coastal counties, including Beaufort, Colleton, Charleston, Berkeley, Dorchester and Georgetown Counties. With the evacuation order came the order to shut down schools “until further notice.”

McMaster lifted his evacuation order for Beaufort, Colleton and Jasper Counties on Thursday. On Friday, he lifted the evacuation order for the remaining counties, Charleston, Berkeley, Dorchester, Georgetown and Horry.
