• Updated impacts from Tropical Storm Michael on our area

    ...- Jason Frazer
    Michael has been downgraded to a Tropical Storm. However, it continues to push into Southeast Georgia. Flooding has already being reported in parts of Albany and Southwest Georgia. Conditions during the overnight hours will deteriorate as Michael moves through Southeast Georgia and Lowcountry. All of the Tornado Warnings and Watches for GA and SC have expired. However,  our entire viewing area is also under a Tropical Storm Warning.
  • What We Can Expect From Hurricane Michael

    ...- Jason Frazer
    Our entire viewing area is under a Tropical Storm Warning. This means you could see Tropical Storm like conditions including winds up to 73 mph over the next 48 hours. On Tuesday, Hurricane Michael was upgraded to a Category 3 storm. Already, we are feeling its impact along the coastline with the increase in wave heights and rip currents. The rain will continue off and on in our area. However, Hurricane Michael will really ramp up late Wednesday afternoon.
  • What Impact Will Florence Have For the Rest of The Weekend

    ...- Jason Frazer
    As of Saturday Evening, Florence is barely holding on to its Tropical Storm status. It has max winds at 45 mph. I anticipated Florence would weaken once it made landfall in North Carolina. I also expect Florence to be downgraded to a Depression by Sunday afternoon. Tropical Storm Florence is 45 miles away from Florence, SC right now. It is continuing to move West at 2 MPH. I am concerned about the storm’s movement.
  • Florence Moves Closer to Southeast GA and Lowcountry

    ...- Jason Frazer
    Hurricane Florence is expected to make landfall sometime within the next 24 hours. However, for the coastline of North and South Carolina, they are already seeing increases in wave heights, beach erosion and rain. Florence right now is 310 miles away from Savannah, GA. It is still a Category 2 storm with max winds around 100 mph. It is continuing to move West North West at 4 MPH.
  • Hurricane Florence expected to impact southeast this week

    ...- Jason Frazer
    As of Monday afternoon, Hurricane Florence is a Category 4 Hurricane. That means the storms has maximum sustained winds of 130 mph. The central pressure continues to fall. This is an indication that the storm is gaining strength. We’re not surprised about that because the water Florence is moving over is pretty warm; around 85 degrees or higher. Hurricanes need at least 80 degrees to maintain their current state or strengthen. No watches or warnings have been issued yet.
  • Tracking Florence: Florence upgraded to a Hurricane

    ...- Jason Frazer
    As of Sunday afternoon, Florence has been upgraded to a Hurricane. We are growing increasingly confident that the storm will make landfall some place along the Eastern seaboard. Several models are indicating the storm will make landfall someplace between Myrtle Beach, SC and Cape Hatteras, NC. However, The National Hurricane Center (NHC) has put Savannah region and Hilton Head in the cone of uncertainty.
