The ice, freezing rain and snow falling in most of the state Wednesday morning is creating hazardous conditions on South Carolina’s roadways despite the best efforts of the Department of Transportation, according to State Emergency Management Division spokesman Derrec Becker.
“We’ve had several reports of ice falling very quickly and accumulating on the roadways; roadways that have already been treated I might add, however the advice we are getting is that it’s having very little effect. The words for today are to stay off the roads, stay home, and stay tuned.”
If staying home is not the best option, the here are some shelters across the state:
