Press Release from the City of Charleston

Two episodes of severe weather are being forecast for the Charleston area over the next 24 hours.

First, between 6 p.m. and 2 a.m. tonight, scattered to severe thunderstorms are expected across the region. Damaging winds in excess of 70 mph, hail, heavy downpours and tornadoes are possible during this time.

Second, a line of strong to severe storms is expected to move into the Charleston area between 5 a.m. and 10 a.m. Monday morning.

City of Charleston first responders will be on heightened alert throughout these incidents.

City of Charleston Emergency Management Director Shannon Scaff said, “Citizens are asked to pay close attention to local media as these storms come through our area tonight and tomorrow morning, and to be prepared to take cover should it become necessary.”

Due to the expected severe weather, citizens whose garbage (green can) is collected on Monday routes are asked not to place their garbage at the curb tonight to prevent debris blowing over and clogging storm drains. Weather permitting, crews will begin the garbage and trash routes early tomorrow morning, so citizens are asked to place their items at the curb for collection before 7 a.m.
