[image-1] If you’re evacuating today, but are planning to leave behind a car and are worried about rising floodwaters, the city is stepping in to give you a place to stash your ride while you get the heck out.

Beginning at 2 p.m. today, Tues. Sept. 11, City of Charleston parking garages, with the exception of the Gaillard Center garage will be open and free for citizens to park their cars through the duration of Hurricane Florence. The city usually announces a day or so before they plan to put the gates back down.
