Wednesday morning before Hurricane Dorian sent rain, wind and debris up the South Carolina coast, many area restaurants and bars were planning to remain open through the storm.
However, that quickly changed in the afternoon, when Dorian was upgraded to a Category 3 and the skies turned an eerie shade of reddish gray. Only a handful ended up staying open Wednesday night, with many closing by 8 p.m. or earlier.
Thursday afternoon, many of those same bars were assessing if they would be able to open for the evening. With tree limbs littering the streets and the evacuation still in order, some bars are playing it safe.
But these are the ones that, as of now, plan on being open.
