Forecasters say SC could see effects of Irene

Aug 22, 2011 10:26:00 AM - thestate.com
The National Weather Service says Hurricane Irene could bring waves, wind and rains to the South Carolina coast later this week.

The storm is near Puerto Rico with maximum winds of 75 mph and it's a bit early to say where exactly it is going. But long-range forecast from the National Hurricane Center indicates the storm could come ashore near the Florida-Georgia border as a hurricane early Saturday morning.

That would put South Carolina on the northeast side of the storm where the strongest winds are in a hurricane.

The weather service office in Charleston and the state Emergency Management Division in Columbia are reminding residents it's a good time for everyone to review hurricane preparation plans.
