Sumter County, Manning to Have a Curfew Overnight

News 19's Deon Guillory shows us the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew in Clarendon County

Clarendon County, SC (WLTX) - Both Sumter County and the City of Manning will have curfews overnight as they recover from the effects of Hurricane Matthew.

As much as 8-10 inches of rain fell in parts of Clarendon County and Sumter County , leading to some flooding. Adding to the problem were high winds that knocked down trees and powerlines. When those structures toppled, they cut electricity to parts of the county and blocked roadways.

Manning Mayor Julia Nelson said conditions would just be too dangerous. Sumter County Sheriff Anthony Dennis said the safety of residents is his top priority.

Manning's curfew is in effect from 7 p.m Saturday to 7 a.m. Sunday, while Sumter County's is in effect from 8 p.m. Saturday  to 7 a.m. Sunday
