NEWS RELEASE - TOWN OF JAMES ISLAND HURRICANE FLORENCE

RELEASE #2

SEPTEMBER 5, 2018

The official forecast track for Hurricane Florence from The National Hurricane Center has shifted slightly to the west. Hurricane Florence rapidly intensified yesterday and will likely remain a hurricane throughout the 5-day forecast period.   At this time, it is too early to determine if Hurricane Florence will affect South Carolina.  The accuracy of the forecast models used to predict the hurricanes projected path decreases significantly beyond 5 days.  It is strongly encouraged that if you have not already done so, that you take both professional and personal actions necessary to ensure that you are prepared to respond to any hurricane having the potential to impact Charleston County.   

The Town of James Island will continue to monitor the forecast for Hurricane Florence as well all other tropical system development as we approach the peak of hurricane season.
