It is always a good idea to know what is happening regionally since there could be a domino effect on roads and other factors however this situation can also lead to mixed messages. Hurricane Florence in 2018 caused confusion about information sources. Due to the fact the Lowcountry region is within the Savannah media market, many people said they were confused since Beaufort County was being evacuated, but the Savannah, Georgia region was not. In this case, it is best to tune into your local and county government venues versus television stations. The Savannah area audience is the television station’s primary audience. The Lowcountry audience is secondary. Therefore, local government agencies will have more complete and specific information for your situation.
