Default SC officials not evacuating prison before Hurricane Dorian despite mandator

SC officials not evacuating prison before Hurricane Dorian despite mandatory order

"As Hurricane Dorian crawls toward the southeastern coast of the United States, South Carolina prison officials have decided not to evacuate a Lowcountry prison despite the governor mandating that coastal residents evacuate.

Staff members and about 950 inmates at Ridgeland Correctional Institution, which is located in the Jasper County evacuation zone, will remain at the medium-security prison for the duration of the storm, officials with the S.C. Department of Corrections tweeted Monday.

“The concrete (and) steel prison, built to updated hurricane standards after Hugo, is safe and secure,” the department tweeted. “Ridgeland has weathered many hurricanes, including a direct hit from Matthew in 2016, with no damage.”
