Tropical Storm Hanna update

Posted Thursday 1 p.m.

Coastal Carolina University officials continue to monitor Tropical Storm Hanna. Although the storm has not reached hurricane strength, a hurricane warning was put into effect for the coastal areas of South Carolina and North Carolina this morning. The 11 a.m. report from the National Hurricane Center indicates that the storm is expected to continue on a northeastern track and possibly make landfall near the South Carolina-North Carolina border.

Gov. Mark Sanford has issued a voluntary evacuation for the beachfront area east of U.S. Highway 17.

Updates will be posted on the University Web site. For the latest information about the projected path of the storm, visit the Web sites of the National Hurricane Center at www.nhc.noaa.gov or the Weather Channel at www.weather.com.
