Statement as of 3:27 PM EDT on April 18, 2014

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on April 18, 2014


... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through late tonight...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of southeast Georgia and southeast South Carolina...
including the following areas... in southeast Georgia...
coastal Bryan... coastal Chatham... coastal Liberty... coastal
McIntosh... Evans... inland Bryan... inland Chatham... inland
Liberty... inland McIntosh... long and Tattnall. In southeast
South Carolina... Beaufort... Charleston... coastal Colleton and
coastal Jasper.

* Through late tonight

* widespread rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches with locally higher
totals are expected through tonight. The heaviest rainfall will
occur from late this afternoon through early Saturday morning.
Of significant concern is the fact that torrential rainfall is
expected late this evening around the time of an above normal
high tide. This could result in significant flooding concerns in
coastal low-lying areas including downtown Charleston and
Savannah.

* Flooding could occur quickly... especially in low-lying and
poor drainage areas. Driving could become hazardous as some
area roadways could become impassable due to high water...
especially in urban areas like downtown Charleston and
Savannah around the time of high tide.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Be prepared to protect life and property... especially in areas
prone to flooding. If flooding develops... move to higher ground
immediately. If driving... be prepared for flooded roadways and
possible Road closures.

323 PM EDT Fri Apr 18 2014

... High rip current risk remains in effect until 8 PM EDT this
evening...
... Coastal Flood Advisory remains in effect from 9 PM this
evening to 2 am EDT Saturday...

* tide levels... high tide at fort Pulaski this evening will occur
around 1130 PM. Tide levels will reach between 9.2 and 9.6 ft
mean lower low water... causing minor saltwater flooding of low-
lying coastal areas... including downtown Savannah and the
barrier islands. Heavy rainfall may coincide with high tide this
evening... causing significantly worse flooding problems.

* 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.

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

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.
