[ARCHIVED] Potential for Major Tidal Flooding Tonight; Additional Flooding into the Weekend

The National Weather Service in Charleston has forecast major flooding for Charleston around this evening’s 7:05 p.m. high tide and near-major flooding around Wednesday and Thursday evenings’ high tides. At this time, no rainfall is forecast for today, however, 2-3 inches of rainfall with locally higher amounts are forecast through Saturday morning, which may exacerbate flooding.

Morning high tides during this time are also expected to be elevated. Minor to moderate flooding may continue into early next week.

Citizens are urged to avoid flooded roadways, as major flooding can be significantly life threatening and property damaging.

City officials will continue to monitor the situation and will provide updates as necessary.

“As always, public safety is job one,” said Emergency Management Director Shannon Scaff. “We ask that residents and visitors monitor forecasts and use caution when traveling on the roadways until these potentially hazardous conditions have improved.”
