    Channel 2 here from what I heard was talking about gusts above 40 / sustained in the mid 30s at 6. They kind of left things open ended like the local weather office did earlier. Schools are cancelled tomorrow but day care is still open so long as the bridges are. I'd rather watch from home but the windows at work give a pretty good view of some tall, spindly trees on adjacent airport property. I don't think very much work will get done tomorrow.

    I think the feed is down for the count. This site isn't too healthy either.

    It's still on for me. His truck is bobbing up against a house. Some siding is visible and there's a 2nd floor deck to the right. I'm surprised it's still this buoyant and that the glass is intact.

    Honestly there's not much to see. I'm amazed none of the windows have broken out yet with as much bobbing around and debris as there seem to be over there. Last time anything was visible it looks like it drifted up against some kind of building.

    That additional 6 (more likely 10)mph seems like a tall hurdle to jump. Might be able to get there though.

    Our local office is calling for 25-35 mph with gusts to 45 mph / potential for 58-73 just to cover all bases.

    I was counting the Labor Day hurricane of 1935 as the 3rd.

    If we were going to get a 4th category 5 landfall I'd put it in the gulf.

    I was referring to the model downeastnc posted, I should've quoted him. Looks like the worst of it would pass through my back yard around midday tomorrow and I'm in for a show either way. There are some huge trees on the perimeter of KCHS to watch from a window near my desk, or some 85' pines in adjacent yards if I'm at home. The road from the airport to 526 would likely be impassable if things start to get interesting. edit: I've also been seeing what Orangeburgwx noticed.

    If it continues northeastward like that in the following few hours we could be looking at bridge closures in Charleston. Wouldn't surprise me if the big one in Savannah is shut down for a while as well. SCE&G or whoever serves the area between here and Columbia will be very busy later this week.

    Too early to tell but I'm wondering about the bridges here in Charleston since they close when the wind is high. That will effectively cut me off from work if that ends up happening. I was planning on avoiding the flight line later this week anyway.

    Lots of counties in the Charleston area have TS Watches up, but the center will most likely pass to our west.

    I'd say today, might as well get ready to go now. This one's a quick mover.

    Could be fun times for us over here in Charleston depending on how this plays out. Possibly the 3rd named storm passing over Charleston County in 3 years?
