Luckily, several government agencies have been ahead of the game, already highlighting on social media the possibility of paranormal activity as the sky goes dark mid-afternoon on August 21. But the South Carolina Emergency Management Division is anxious about something a bit more, let's say, nontraditional.
And with the Carolinas' history of "Lizard Man" and "Bigfoot" sightings, residents should be aware of the possibilities.
The department tweeted this week a map of where folks are said to have spotted lizard people in the past, doing so out of concern that paranormal activity might be on the rise during the eclipse.
The South Carolina Emergency Management Division, in a Tweet, has issued a tongue-in-cheek advisory on possible paranormal activity during the Aug 21 event, noting that "SCEMD does not know if Lizardmen become more active during a solar eclipse, but we advise that residents of Lee and Sumter counties should remain ever vigilant".

In North Carolina, the Greenville Police Department posted a video of a Bigfoot sighting from 2015, telling its followers "if you see Bigfoot, please do not shoot him/her".
Fast forward to now, and the rumors and concerns of Lizard Man sightings during the solar eclipse are such a worry that emergency departments in SC feel the need to acknowledge them.
