In US beach resort, residents seek shelter from the storm

With Hurricane Florence downgraded on Thursday from a Category Four to a Category Two storm, around fifty people left the evacuation shelter in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The shelter had been set up in a school and was offering temporary refugee from the elements to around 400 people on Thursday, although it had a capacity for up to 1,200 in the popular seaside resort. “A lot of people left this morning, because they said it was down to Category Two but a Two can still do a lot of damage,” she said, noting that even in the lower classification, Florence’s winds would be buffeting at 100 miles per hour (161 kilometers per hour).
