POSSIBLE...ESPECIALLY ALONG THE CHARLESTON AND COLLETON COUNTY COASTS.
THERE WILL BE A RISK FOR MINOR FLOODING...MAINLY IN LOW LYING AND POOR

THIS TIME. THE RISK FOR FLOODING WILL BE HIGHEST IN URBAN AREAS AS
WELL AS COASTAL AREAS DURING TIMES OF HIGH TIDE. HOWEVER...THE AMOUNT

CONDITIONS COULD DEVELOP ON ELEVATED AND EXPOSED BRIDGES SUCH AS THE
RAVENEL BRIDGE...THE DON HOLT BRIDGE...THE JAMES ISLAND CONNECTOR AND
THE ISLE OF PALMS CONNECTOR. NO SIGNIFICANT WIND IMPACTS ARE EXPECTED
ACROSS THE REMAINDER OF SOUTHEAST SOUTH CAROLINA AND SOUTHEAST
