Also, due to Hurricane Florence’s unpredictability and the high possibility of flooding for the area, the Jasper County Emergency Services has issued an advisory to county residents to get to higher ground.
That means any Jasper County resident who lives in evacuation zone A or low-lying areas needs to make sure they stay on high ground.
