CSRA (WJBF) - It's not what you want to hear when you live on the coast: there's a storm with a name on it, and you're in the zone.
"We live in Murrells Inlet and we we're in zone B which is a mandatory evacuation. Called a few days ahead of time and got rooms up here," said Kay Start.
This is a storm you run from, and evacuees need all the essential items.
"That and our pets. They were the most important," said Kay.
"We took, you know, the essentials...like the dogs and the important paper work," said Karen Palermo friend and fellow evacuee.
Yes, this group that Flo made go didn't leave home without them. All four of the ones with two legs, brought one with four legs.
"They were going, they were part of the suitcase," said Rex Foster, another evacuee.
"Was there any thought in the Hart Family, you were going to leave these dogs behind?"
"Not one damn bit," he said with a laugh.
"When you have a dog, and you're a pet lover, they are part of the family," said Rex.
And if you're a group of evacuees with your Florence fleeing fidos, you go to the dog park in North Augusta to play with the other dogs. So how did they like it?
"She's a little grumpy," said Steve.
"Well she got evacuated I don't blame her!"
But soon the storm will be over and they'll all be dog gone back home in North Augusta George Eskola WJBF NewsChannel 6.
