Coastal flood advisory for downtown Charleston canceled

CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - A coastal flood advisory for downtown Charleston and surrounding areas has been canceled.

The coastal flood advisory was put in effect by the National Weather Service for the lower South Carolina Coast at 8 a.m., and was scheduled to end at 11 a.m. The advisory was called off just before 10 a.m.

Officials say high tide and the possibility of heavy rain fall could have created flood issues for much of downtown Charleston, as well as areas in Beaufort.

The tide levels in the Charleston Harbor were expected to peak at 6.9 to 7.1 feet when high tide rolled in around 8:52 a.m.  High tide at Beaufort River was expected at 10:02 a.m.
