Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Many schools districts in South Carolina have shut down due to Hurricane Florence.

It's still uncertain where Florence may hit, but because the state's coast is at risk, Governor Henry McMaster decided to evacuate the entire list of shoreline counties

Some of the districts are closed directly because of the evacuation, while others are closed because of the congestion expected on the roads. And in some cases, it's because the buses are needed to evacuate people.

UPDATE: On Tuesday, the governor said schools would be back in session Wednesday for the following districts: Aiken, Allendale, Bamberg, Beaufort, Barnwell, Colleton, Hampton, and Jasper.
