The threat of Hurricane Matthew will close down the University of South Carolina campus on Wednesday.
News of the school’s closing came about an hour after South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley declared a state of emergency and called for an evacuation of the coastal area.
USC officials announced Wednesday’s news on Twitter.
