South Carolina says Georgia game will be played in Columbia

The SEC did not announce a makeup date for the Saturday game in Gainesville, Fla., between LSU and Florida. The storm's center is expected to be near the coast of southern North Carolina by Saturday night.

Two million people had been told to move inland to escape the storm, which left more than 280 dead in the Caribbean.

Scott said the hurricane "still has time to do a direct hit" and he remarked that "the worst part of this is yet to come".

"What we may be looking at is a lot of power outages for an extended period of time", Haley said.

In Horry County, Monday is a teacher work day so children don't have school. Traffic was light both ways. Water that high could threaten life and cut off exits for those who did not evacuate.

"Right now, the track takes it very close to the SC coast, and as of 8 a.m. Saturday, it's very near the Charleston coast", he said.

That being said, it would be a mistake to expect that things are going to be back to normal across the state of SC by Sunday afternoon.

Rain was falling across all but the northwestern corner of the state early Saturday.

Zidane went on: "Nothing has changed". "It is not just Cristiano - all players can be angry when they leave the pitch". But they're intelligent and we're going to rest up, prepare the next match and turn this around".

Haley said multiple agencies worked together to reverse lanes on I-26, and earlier, the average drive time between Charleston and Columbia was only about an hour-and-a-half.

The Charleston Harbor had a surge of 9.29 feet, the 3rd highest on record, and highest since Hugo.

Richland County Council Chairman Torrey Rush said he has no issues with the sheriff s department, which employs 700 officers, stepping into the game as long as there are enough deputies to cover the rest of the county.

McIlwain, who tries to use his legs and much as his arm to move the football, has thrown for 567 yards and two touchdowns and has rushed for 98 yards and two scores. In many areas it is still not safe for them to be in the field, but as soon as they can begin assessing the damage they will do so and begin reporting what they find.

Crews reversed a lane of US 278 leaving Hilton Head Island and USA 21 leaving Beaufort Wednesday afternoon. The Sea Islands storm of 1893 brought 125 miles per hour winds and up to 14 feet of water.

In the Charleston area dozens of roads and intersections were flooded by rising waters or blocked by downed trees.

No storm-related deaths have been reported in SC.

Hurricane Matthew continues to cause problems for travelers, with 4,500 flights canceled so far between Wednesday and Saturday, according to tracking service FlightAware. Charleston and most nearby communities have curfews in effect until daybreak. Even before the governor spoke, the U.S. Coast Guard has closed the Port of Charleston, saying no vessels can leave Charleston or enter the port until the hurricane emergency has passed. She said they are planning a "robust" response effort, including additional engineering resources from Army Corps and aid from the Homeland Security division that assisted in last year's historic flooding.
