... Coastal Flood Advisory in effect from 6 PM to 9 PM EDT this
evening...

The National Weather Service in Charleston has issued a coastal

* Location... low-lying coastal areas of southeast South Carolina.

* Tide levels... peaking at 7.0 to 7.2 MLLW at the Charleston tide

* Impacts... inundation of saltwater in and near low-lying
coastal areas could lead to some Road closures and flooding of
properties.

* Rip currents... wind and wave conditions support the
development of very strong rip currents. These rip currents
will be life threatening to anyone who enters the surf.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Be prepared for the possibility of Road closures and minor
flooding of properties. If travel is necessary... do not attempt
to drive through water of unknown depth.

No one should enter the surf due to life threatening rip
currents.
