COLUMBIA, SC (WBTW) – Haley, in an update on storm preparations that ended with a prayer, said that an estimated 355,000 people have fled coastal areas in advance of the storm – 45,000 more than Friday morning.
Haley also warned the public about a cyber security situation going on across the state where people are receiving emails asking them to “click here” for a power outage update. She asked residents to not open the email because it could take over your computer.

The governor also said she will give another update later this afternoon.
