The SCDOT released a Hurricane Matthew Status of Operations UPDATE:

The greatest impact from Hurricane Matthew is below I-20 and east of I- 95. Crews are assessing damage and removing downed trees from roadways in District 1, 4, 5, 6 and 7. In many areas, it has not been safe to assess the damage. Therefore, many roads are likely blocked or flooded that have yet to be reported. Over the next few days, a complete assessment will be made.

At least 60 maintenance crews in the upstate and midlands will deploy today as necessary to assist with road clearing in Districts 5 and 6. The northern section of I-95 from the North Carolina line to mile marker 181 is closed due to flooding and downed trees.

Due to ongoing flooding and areas that have not been assessed, motorists are urged to avoid travel until conditions improve and roads are cleared. Conditions are still hazardous with the possibility of trees, debris, and downed power lines blocking roads. Power outages are widespread from the midlands to the coast. The public is reminded that flash floods happen quickly and may not be identified with warning signs. If the road is covered with water "turn around, don't drown".
