CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – The Charleston Police Department is expecting flooding in low lying areas around the city on Tuesday.

A high tide of 8-feet is predicted at 11:00 a.m.

“We see this all the time, but when anything is expected over 7-feet you can bet we’ll see flooding downtown,” said Storm Team 2 meteorologist Arielle Whooley.

Charleston Police say motorists can expect intersections such as Broad Street, Lockwood Drive, Fishburne Avenue and Hagood Avenue, among others, to flood and possibly be impassable.

Drivers should use caution and not drive around barricades and never drive through flooded roadways.
