Bryan County Emergency Services Director Jim Anderson said Wednesday afternoon “there are no evacuations planned for Bryan County.”
Anderson spoke with the hurricane center in Charleston following the 11 a.m. forecast and said the best estimate for Hanna’s landfall is now just north of Charleston itself.
But he said there is a “400 mile error range”, meaning it could land within 400 miles of Charleston each way on the U.S. coast. Bryan County is 88 miles from Charleston.
“There is still potential for the storm to track anywhere from the Northeast Georgia Coast to the Carolinas,” Anderson said. “I will continue to monitor this storm until it actually makes landfall somewhere along the East Coast. Remember, changes can occur rapidly in the forecast track and you should continue to monitor this storm until the threat has passed.”
If current projections do hold true – and landfall is in Charleston – Hanna, at its current strength, could cause 1-2 inches of rain and some gusty winds, Anderson said.
