TOWN OF SEABROOK ISLAND Hurricane Irma UPDATE

Date  9 September 2017                               Time 1:30 pm

Charleston County has told us to expect a storm surge of 3 – 4 feet above normal tide to arrive Monday, September 11 between 10:00 AM and 3:00 PM. High tide will be 12:30 PM on Monday.

High tide Monday will be 7 feet, adding 3-4 feet of storm surge means around 11 feet of water height at high tide Monday. If the surge occurs at high tide we estimate 70% of Seabrook roads could be covered with water to some degree. The possibility of power outages continues for portions of the Island, depending on the extent to which power boxes are flooded.

Tropical storm conditions are expected Sunday through Monday evening, 4 – 6 inches of rainfall is predicted over the same time. Expect tree damage and falling limbs.

Seabrook is presently under a tropical storm watch and a storm surge watch.

For emergency response, call 911.

For questions concerning non-emergency assistance during a state of emergency, call the Charleston County Citizen’s Information Hot Line at 843-746-3900.
