Charleston is closed: A City is Ready to Brace for Matthew

Preparation has been set in motion.  Businesses and homes are securing their domain.  Shelters are being prepared for the homeless.  Buses, cars and trucks are leaving in droves.  This is a monumental event and one that has not threatened these parts since 1999.  As a community braces for the awesome power of Mother Nature, we put our thoughts and prayers to everyone and their families.

For those that remain, Charleston is witnessing a rare event, a virtual ghost town where we put aside the aesthetic beauty of this historic area and put safety first.

We wanted to share some images that we will rarely see:  a city closed for business.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keep South Carolina and everyone potentially affected in your thoughts in the next few days.
