There are three hurricane evacuation zones, which incorporates more land mass and requires additional people living in those areas to leave during certain hurricanes based on surge inundation instead of category of storm.  It will be important for every resident to know if they live in a hurricane evacuation zone and what to do when asked to leave. Residents can visit the Horry County Emergency Management’s website at to view the hurricane evacuation zone maps and related information on how to prepare for the upcoming hurricane season.

To Know Your Zone and to learn more about hurricane planning, please visit Horry County Emergency Management at or call 915-5150.
