When a hurricane is in the area, it's important to know where the evacuation shelters are in Horry County in case the need to leave your home arises.
If you evacuate, follow these instructions from Ready.gov. Packing an emergency kid, having a plan, knowing your routes, making others know where you're going, and arranging care for your pets are the main points.
HorryCounty.org has a PDF printable brochure with very specific information about evacuation routes, why and when you would want to leave, and how to find information about returning. While a shelter should be your last resort, below is a map of Horry County hurricane evacuation shelters. By clicking on each icon, you can enter your address and get driving directions.
