Anderson Co. officials monitoring Michael and preparing for any impact


ANDERSON Co., SC (WSPA) – All five Anderson County superintendents were on a conference call Wednesday night with emergency management officials discussing what we could see over the next 24 hours and how that may impact the schools.

This communication with the districts and other county agencies first started on Tuesday as Hurricane Michael showed impacts to the Upstate.

Just like a few weeks ago, it is all about planning in Anderson County. Officials believe it will just be a debris management type of event with possibly some lost power. But they want to make sure people are still getting prepared.

“Make a kit, a good kit would be flashlight, batteries, water, food supplies and all the things you need that would last you a day or two,” said Lt. David Baker who is the Emergency Management Division Director.

One thing officials want to remind the public of is that if you come across a downed tree or lose power, do not call 911. Officials want to make sure that line is open for emergencies and ask that you report either of those items to the non-emergency line.
