SC evacuated much of its coast in October when Hurricane Matthew skirted the shoreline before coming ashore just north of Charleston with winds of 75 miles per hour. The company is donating $1 of every ticket booked on Wednesday, Sept. 6 to the American Red Cross for hurricane relief efforts.

But while its trajectory is still unknown, it's entirely possible Jose could curve northwards and avoid the Caribbean and the United States coast altogether. "We do have others inbound from other states".
