Hilton Head Island South Carolina
Today was a good day for coastal Georgia and parts of South Carolina. Tropical storm Isaias stayed far enough off shore to produce some wind gusts and rain bands but nothing too bad.
I went out at 9 this morning and here’s what it looked like:
Yellow flags flying-rip currents, extreme danger for swimmers
Hopefully, folks will heed the warning and this young man will have an uneventful day
I finished taking photos just in time to get inside before the rain came pouring down. It stayed that way until about 3PM…..
Thats when I went back out and you can see the storm was now about 80 miles off shore. The waves still had a good kick, but the mean clouds had moved on.
The flag has been upgraded to red-that is the most dangerous warning for swimmers, indicating high surf and dangerous currents.
Folks enjoy the surf while staying cautious
Not me, I just get my toes wet 🙂
Tonight Isaias is traveling north and has picked up strength. It is now a category 1 hurricane expected to make landfall near the North/South Carolina line. Hopefully, it will move through without much damage.
The storm lowered the temperature into the 80’s and that was a welcome relief from the heat.
