Lowcountry preps for severe weather

Posted: Updated:

While severe weather has hit much of the southeastern United States, the Lowcountry only has experienced some cloud coverage.

The storm isn't expected to reach the area until Wednesday night, but already people around the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry are getting ready.

Even though the area isn't expected to see any tornadoes, there is still a possibility, so officials in Beaufort, Hampton and Jasper counties are warning residents to prepare now.

"The residents need to go ahead and plan," said Emergency Management's Susan Peeples. "Do their plan at home, make sure that they activate it, over it with their children so their children will know where to go in the event of a disaster, with their weather radio. Listen to the weather radio, pay attention to what it's telling you."
