Tropical Storm Ian Advisory
September 25, 2022 – 6:00 pm
At 1:30 pm on September 25, 2022, officials from the Town of Seabrook Island participated in a regional conference call with Charleston County Emergency Management Department (“CCEMD”) to review the threat posed by Tropical Storm Ian. Owing to uncertainties in the forecast storm track, potential impacts to Seabrook Island remain difficult to accurately predict. The Town will continue to monitor storm activity.
National Weather Service Charleston reported that possibly as early as Thursday and into Friday, the Charleston area may experience heavy rain (5-7 inches) and tropical storm force wind gusts. The area along the coast will feel the greatest impact. There is the potential for coastal flooding and beach erosion during that time. Seabrook Island residents are encouraged to monitor storm reporting and to make early preparations for potential storm impacts, including power outages.
Residents, property owners and visitors are advised to monitor local media outlets for updates on Tropical Storm Ian. Forecasts are also updated regularly on the National Hurricane Center website at www.hurricanes.gov.
The Town of Seabrook Island remains at OPCON 3 (Normal Operating Conditions) as we continue to monitor Tropical Storm Ian.
The next Town advisory is anticipated to be distributed by 3:00 PM on Monday, September 26th, unless conditions warrant an earlier update.
Property owners and managers with rental guests should forward this information to their rental guests. Owners and managers of commercial establishments are also encouraged to share this information with their employees.
Official updates from the town will be posted on the following town channels, as warranted:
