From the small screen to the silver screen, your Charleston Jazz Orchestra will revisit some of the most memorable musical moments in film and television.

King Tide in the Charleston Area August 18-20

The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) is leading the South Carolina King Tides initiative to document the effect that extreme tide events have on our state’s beaches, coastal waterways, private property and public infrastructure.

Remember to clean off the drains near your home before predicted King Tides and if your home is prone to flooding, you might want to prepare your basement / garage for flooding.

2020 Predicted King Tides:
August 18-20
September 15-21
October 14-20
November 13-18
December 13-16

What is a King Tide?
The term King Tide is a non-scientific term often used to describe exceptionally high tides. Higher than normal tides typically occur during a new or full moonand when the Moon is at perigee, or during specific seasons around the country. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), develops annual astronomical tide predictions (which take into account the gravitational pull of the moon and sun on Earth’s oceans) at over 200 locations in South Carolina. Water levels may, however, exceed predicted heights due to precipitation, onshore winds, and other short-term meteorological events.
