A strong line of severe thunderstorms is sweeping across the southeast today, and forecasters predict that these storms could have significant impact on our area from around 6:00pm until Midnight (Thursday 2/6). Please check the local media outlets for the most current forecast. By mid to late afternoon, it is expected that a few thunderstorms could develop away from the coast. These thunderstorms have the potential to become severe and capable of producing wind damage or isolated tornadoes.
It is extremely likely that the Thunderstorms will disrupt tonight’s ferry schedule. Please call the ferry at 843-568-3990 for the most current run times, and plan your travel to the island allowing for the anticipated storms.
Additionally, it is important to note that the Breeze is temporarily limited to transporting ONLY 6 passengers at a time, so it is extremely important to call ahead to the ferry when departing the island.
During periods of strong wind, the Islander will not operate. During lightning events, neither vessel will operate.
