CHARLESTON, SC (WCBD) – Travel will be tricky for areas along the coast Wednesday morning because of tidal flooding.

A coastal flood warning is in place through 8:30 am. We could see up to two feet of standing water in some areas, especially areas known to flood.

The City of Charleston is preparing for flooding impacts. Barriers will be used to block flooded roads.

According to City of Charleston Police Captain Cip Season, “to ensure motorists’ safety, we ask that citizens respect barricades and avoid driving through standing water of unknown depth.”

Public safety officials tell us they are monitoring conditions throughout the day.

The National Weather Service issued the advisory between 7:30 am and 10:30 am because of high tides and heavy winds combined coul

We are told the following intersections and areas are likely to be impacted:

Lockwood Boulveard and Broad St

Calhoun Street between Courtenay Drive and Pitt Street

Hagood Avenue and Fishburne Street

Highway 61 exit ramp from Ashley River Bridge to Saint Andrews Boulevard

Ashley River Bridge exit ramp onto Lockwood Drive

Connector from Lockwood Drive to Calhoun Street at the base of the James Island Connector

President Street between Bogard and Nunan Street

Huger Street and King Street
