[ARCHIVED] Tropical storm Michael update Tues, Oct 9, 10pm

Hurricane Michael Update-Oct. 9 @ 10:00 pm:

Since 5 pm, Tybee and the County have been placed under a Tropical Storm Warning.  We also remain under a Coastal Flood Advisory until 2 pm on Thursday. 

We have received a lot of questions about the potential for flooding. Below are the predictions as of 9:45 pm this evening from the National Weather Service Charleston office for upcoming tides.  Keep in mind that Highway 80 floods at approximately 9.6 feet.  

Wednesday morning high tide (9:28 am): 9.3 feet

Wednesday evening high tide (9:43 am): 8.8 feet

Thursday morning high tide (10:14 am): 8.1 feet

Thursday evening high tide (10:28 pm): 8.4 feet

The reason the tide levels are lower than they were yesterday and today is because the astronomical tides are getting lower as the week progresses, which is obviously good news as Michael gets closer to us.  

The double red flags will continue to fly at the beach until further notice. This means that waters are closed to swimmers due to very strong rip currents and high waves. 

We will put out another update specific to Tybee no later than 11 am tomorrow morning.
