Video: Hurricane Matthew Is Hitting South Carolina, Including Williams-Brice Stadium, Very Hard

Charleston flooding is serious, and even Columbia is being hit hard as Hurricane Matthew makes its way through South Carolina.

Many projections expected Hurricane Matthew to turn east from the South Carolina coast. Instead, it has hit the entire state pretty hard on Saturday morning. Charleston, which expected to take the brunt of the storm in the state, is experiencing flooding.

Hurricane Matthew has had an effect on local college teams. ESPN's Jeff Goodman reports that College of Charleston's men's basketball team is practicing in upstate South Carolina at Bob Jones University, after evacuating ahead of the Charleston flooding.

College of Charleston basketball team is taking shelter in the upstate of South Carolina during Hurricane Matthew. Campus and school closed indefinitely on the 4th. Team is currently practicing at Bob Jones University on Friday and Saturday and Furman University on Sunday -- both located in Greenville, S.C. Began first day of practice at CofC on the 3rd and evacuated on the 4th/5th.

The storm has affected cities farther inland as well, however. Based on video of South Carolina's Williams-Brice Stadium, which was originally set to host the Gamecocks vs. Georgia today, it seems like a very wise decision to move this game to tomorrow.

That game is scheduled to be played at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, October 9. We wish everyone affected by these storms the best over the next few days. Stay safe, everyone.
