CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – Several roads throughout the city of Charleston are closed Thursday due to flooding associated with tidal flooding.
Storm Team 2 Meteorologist Josh Marthers said significant coastal flooding is likely between 7:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Thursday thanks to high tide at 9:00 a.m.
“Tidal flooding concerns remain high through 11:00 a.m. before we shift our attention to bands of heavy rain and gusty wind later today through Friday morning,” said Marthers, noting that much of the Lowcountry will feel impacts from Tropical Storm Nicole.
Marthers said breakers up to 8 feet are expected which will cause beach erosion up and down the South Carolina coast. “This will allow tidal surge ahead of Nicole to easily flood low-lying areas on barrier islands this morning,” he said.
Below is a list of roads that are actively closed in the Charleston area due to flooding on Thursday:
- Barre Street from Beaufain Street to Montague Street
- Hagood Avenue at Line Street
- Washington Street from Hazel to Society
- Washington Street at Laurens Street
- Washington Street from Wentworth Street to Gadsden Street
